quietish weekend

Permalink 15:48:02, Categories: Observation by Howard  

On Friday I took out visiting birder John Walker and bumped into Jem and Nicol who were ringing but still we all didn't see a great deal in the way of new species.
On Saturday I just went to Hamalah and the experiemental Farm which was also still quiet but I did get a few photos

The Marsh Harriers at Alba and Hamalah are still around so it was a real delight to find a rather tame Pallid that allowed close approach for a change

Sadly none of the European Bee-eaters presented themselves for a photo opportunity so had to make do yet again with bluecheeked
