After 2 weeks in Mallorca visiting one of Europes prime bird reserves and photographing species rarely seen in the UK it is back to Pagham! Since my previous blogs things have changed on the birding front and we are into the breeding season. The Little Terns have returned and Common Terns are much in evidence. Ringed Plovers are nesting on the shingle and Linnets are taking up home in the gorse (at least 4 pairs).Skylarks have established territories and a MeadowPipit was prospecting yesterday.
...and oh yes the photo! It is a male Little Bittern that I was lucky enough to find in the S'Albufera ..it showed up for about 7 seconds so I had to be quick!
Incidentally on return from holiday my computer went into total meltdown and I have lost dozens of precious images taken earlier in the year...another hard lesson to learn about backing up regularly.
Its no good getting upset; whats done is done. A good excuse to get out and get that shutter clicking...you've got to remain positive!!
