English (UK)   The migrants are gone  -  Categories: Bird Images (posts)  -  @ 10:50:31 am

There are no more migrants to be seen, although I did spot a juvenile red-backed shrike on Thursday but he was a straggler. Yesterday I concentrated on a few residents, in future I may need to turn to waders and terns.

English (UK)   At last, some sunshine  -  Categories: Bird Images (posts)  -  @ 09:38:29 am

It's surprising what a difference a bit of sunshine makes. I had my fingers crossed for some decent birds as the conditions were almost perfect. As it turned out, my luck was in.




The first thing I saw were these two lesser kestrels perched on sprinkler heads


There were lots of red-backed shrikes around, this is just one of them

Friday was very dull with occasional specks of rain. I still managed to get something which was better than I'd hoped for.
