A new garden bird

Nothing exciting but we have never had a Reed Bunting in the garden before. Besides that, there were 2 Chiifchaffs in our one and only tree and although a dull and dreary morning, I  thought these visitors were  a sign of a good morning with migrants in every bush!

How wrong can you be!!

A single Wheatear, 2 Robins and about 6 house Martins overhead.

I took the camera just in case and jacked up the ISA to 800 and felt obligated to take a few shots so here they are....
The single Wheatear

A distant Whimbrel

A Little Egret...showing off its yellow foot!

...and even he/she didn't stop long!
