As I started my early morning sortie I was alerted by the call of a Great Spotted Woodpecker and there it was on the telegraph pole outside the bungalow...there are no trees on the spit so I suppose this was next best!
|The Pintail seems to have taken up residence on the Lagoon|
|Wheatears were still much in evidence and this was a superb male in front of the hide|
|I was pleased to see the Dartford Warbler was still present enjoying blackberries|
|It responded to a bit of pishing...|
|...and eventually showed well and posed in the sunshine|
|The Peregrine was hunting..|
|and although it made a few stoops on passing pigeons I didn't see it make a kill|
A kingfisher was present on the Lagoon (although too far away for a photo) and Chiffchaffs were darting in and out of the bushes
... whilst a single Whitethroat permitted a close approach
Not a bad hour for a few new images.
