What hope for the terns on the Church Norton spit!

Church Norton Spit from PaghamSpit with special protection for rare ground nesting birds

The notice was looked at before this photo was taken!

Lets allow the dog to run loose!

However a trip to Lavington Plantation was interesting and also taught me a lesson about photography on hot days. Took loads of photos but success was very limited due to heat shimmer. Yellowhammers were much in evidence as well as Tree Pipits, Linnets and a Cuckoo. Great Tits, Blue Tits and Willow Warblers were all feeding young on nests. A few 'soft' images ...
Cuckoo...watching and waiting for an opportunity.

Yellowhammer...the males are really bright!

Tree Pipit
They don't look too bad if they are not enlarged...the Great Tit was in the cool woodland and a lot easier to get a more respectable shot....
Great Tit at nest 

...didn't stop long!
