|I think we've all had this moment, when the Fox walks out from ahead of you|
However I always persevere, and i'm sure something will turn up to excite me before the migration season is out, that almost happened this afternoon, whilst I stood in an empty Tree Nursery I heard a totally unfamiliar call, a bit like a cross between a Littel Owl and a Jay, it was in flight and coming from behind the Greenhouses, I waited excitedly for it to appear, only to see it was a flaming Cockatiel! No wonder I didn't recognise the call :-)
The rest of the visit was much like yesterday, but only two raptor species were seen, SPARROWHAWK and KESTREL, good numbers of HOUSE MARTIN continue to pass through, and a few MEADOW PIPITS pass over from time to time, with the odd one dropping into the sheep pasture at Migrant Alley. The only warblers seen today were two CHIFFCHAFFS.
I was back home by 16:30hrs, so spent an hour or so in my shed hide, photographing the garden birds at the feeders, I got the NUTHATCH today, and was happier with these shots than the recent ones I took :-)
