By 08:30 I had to get out, I was bored stiff indoors. I got as far round my patch as the tree nursery, Migrant alley and the college grounds, but then it started to rain, making me feel even worse! What did I see for my efforts ? Very little, the highlight was the CUCKOO flying over Migrant Alley.
By midday the sun was back out, so I dragged my sorry bones over to my seat at Migrant Alley. A few SKYLARKS sang, and PIED WAGTAILS were on the maize field, 5 very high flying HERRING GULLS went over and another 4 CUCKOO'S were seen, flying in different directions, but they could have been the same bird I suppose. 2hrs later I gave up, my mind wasn't on the job, so i went home and spent the afternoon taking pics of my garden wildlife, until it clouded over at 16:00hrs.
Here's what I managed to photograph, without moving more than 2 meters from my chair!! No bird photo's today, thats a first!
Below are a couple of Large Red Damselflies
next a couple of Common Newt pics.
