Two good birds....still here!

Another morning when Wood Pigeons were streaming westwards from about 7.15 for an hour or so....small flocks averaging about 350 but totalling 4000 (approx!). A Spotted Redshank and a single Knot on the Little Lagoon with a Greenfinch flock (350)on the spit were the only birds of note.
In the afternoon I went to check on the Lapland Bunting and it was still present on the North Wall...tamer than ever! I've posted some close-ups on my Flickr site.

The added bonus today was the flypast by the Spoonbilland although the images aren't perfect I was pleased to get a couple of flight pictures.

Shortly after this I made a run for home and almost got there before the heavens opened and then the sun came out and hey presto a superb rainbow.
