Playing away

Another sunny day dawned across fairyland to the reprise of zero birds! On the morning rounds all of Inner Farne’s Willow Warbler had departed along with many others it seemed.
But just when you though it was quiet a female Wheatear and cracking Tree Pipit appeared feeding next to eachother!

The rest of today has been spend offsite at Low-Newton where singing Grasshopper, Sedge and Willow Warbler as well as Blackcap and Chiffchaff were had whilst working. Other birds in the area included more springy stuff like overhead House Martin, Linnet and Swallow passage.

Other than birds this area seems brilliant for plants (although I couldn’t tell you what they all were!) as well as Amphibs such as this Great Crested Newt we found (and didn’t disturb/touch) during our gardening.

Beside that beast I had Water Carpet which are always nice to see.

With the winds looking pretty favourable over the next few days ‘anything can happen’ as Bambi would say.
