Funny how when you keep putting off blogging more and more stuff happens til you're veritably constipated with material, happenings, 'sources' and so on. In short it's been a while and there's been a fair bit seen birdwise during this interim, which I shall now 'lay it down on ya' like a real old time G.
Check out those particles!
A stormy period made everything go nuts including the sand up at Bar Point where a wander round those ends produced the customary Great Big F##k Off Northern Divers are still hanging out looking hard while the sheltered coastlines held little beside Little Egret, Whimbrel and Common Gull. No white-wingers as was hoped..
Little Egret 'arty' shot, notice how I used blur to accentuate the ghost like properties of this species...ahem
Pretty rare shot of a Sparrowhawk right there, one of the regular duo rounds there ere parts.
Deary me that's a good looking bird.
If that was in September would people be shouting Greenish?
Presumably the 'immature' seen a couple of weeks back, this bird looks to probably be 2nd winter ish, hope it sticks around and lets me eyeball it again!
