ID the bird!!

Okay so this isn't difficult, but what's the species of bird obscured by the 'wave'?

Pretty easy one to work out really...

Whilst I was busy not seeing the short-visiting Spoonbill, I took a couple of shots of a flyover Peregrine Falcon:

Another Spring migrant wader!

Only a Green Sandpiper but hopefully things will improve soon... Here's a few lousy pics (hideous lighting; shooting into the Sun):

Lovely first 2014 migrant wader at Black Hole Marsh

Just a quick post, there will be more content soon!! After feeling a bit lousy I booked this afternoon off work as holiday and it was definitely worthwhile. I saw the Gadwall at Seaton Marshes (will upload pics at a later date) and also found our first proper migrant wader, a stunning Little Ringed Plover. A few other locals soon joined me after I sent the message out. Let's hope that some more join it so we can try and break last years record flock of 23...

Roll on Spring...

Well there are plenty of signs of an imminent Spring and I'm very much looking forward to it. I'll certainly be setting my alarm nice and early most mornings and getting out before work every day. Clocks changing will help for after work birding too as it's still pretty dark when I finish work at the moment...
Here's a couple of recent shots. Not particularly interesting but it beefs up this otherwise short post!

Mounted photographs of Red-Flanked Bluetail

I've had a few enquiries from people regarding purchasing a print of one of my Red-Flanked Bluetail photographs from last week. Whether it's people I saw on the day or someone simply wanting a pic to remember the delightful bird by, then I can run one off if you like any of my shots.

I can do mounted photographs, blank cards (both shown above) or just a simple print. I do all printing myself so I can print as per sizes requested, and do so relatively cheaply.

Feel free to contact me via if you're interested.
