Birds still coming through - BK

Permalink 02:11:34 pm, Categories: Reported Observations  

Bee-eaters are plentiful today. Snipe are building up and the odd roller can still be found. The wheatears are starting to thin out in the past few days.

Almost missed this!

Birds of Prey - BK

I happened to be in the right place at the right time this weekend. This Osprey and a Hobby were very obliging.

Migrants are coming though in small numbers but a good range of species. Below are a few recent photographs of what is around.

Pallid or Montagu's Harrier

Permalink 10:56:24 pm, Categories: Reported Observations  

A discussion with Howard raised the notion that the Harrier below might be a Montagu's. The deciding factor for me is the light collar on the Pallid. I have added another shot of the same bird to show the collar. Definitely a Pallid in my book.


Yep I would agree on that Brendan - my books confirm that as well



Migrants coming

Permalink 10:20:37 pm, Categories: Reported Observations  

The morning was quiet but the afternoon provided a few migrants. I (Brendan) was at Ali farm most of the day and got lucky with this shot of a Pallid Harrier drinking from a pool of water. 2 Pallid Harriers and 3 Collared Pratincoles were the highlight of the day.
