Last Thursday was very sunny and good for pictures. Here are a few herons and terns taken that day.

As there have been a lot of pallid swifts around lately, I thought I'd try my hand at photographing them. These are the better shots.
Yesterday I got my first sighting of a white-tailed lapwing. Picture below.
At last I managed to get out again yesterday. The following are some of the birds around.
