Foggy morning with heavey dew

Permalink 09:41:08, Categories: Observation by Howard  

Dense fog this morning which didn't lift till gone 9 o'clock made life difficult yet again in getting around. Nothing worse than driving in soft ground not being able to see wheer you are going. It did provide a surreal landscape at times but with the long lens this was impossible to capture on film but the heavy air did light up smaller things when the sun finally came out.

Stonechat with so many around maybe the easiest species to spot this morning


In the fog


Jack Snipe a hard bird to find but this one ignored me as it sat in the same place for several hours

unlike this Pin-tailed Snipe which was seen only briefly in the fog then took to flight and disappeared on the click of the camera into the gloom

Isabelline Wheatear - this bird followed me around picking off the grasshoppers I disturbed - a very tame and confiding bird

Hoopoe I think this is one of the individuals that bird breed locally in Hamalah this year - one of at least four pairs recording breeding

Indian Silverbill now more apparent over the fodder fields at the experimental farm at Hamalah
