|Looking very smart!|
On Friday a visit to West Wittering to check on the long staying Snow Buntings was successful but the birds were flighty and the invasion of dog walkers made the morning challenging! It took a little time to locate them ... their plumage just melted into the pebbles..see below!
However with patience and fieldcraft a few photos were obtained..
On the way home I checked into Ivy Lake.... the Long Tailed Duck was still present but distant.
This morning dawned bright and sunny and remained so all day. Ringed plovers were very active on the beach and displaying madly showing off their erratic display flight...a real taste of Spring in the air.
On just returning home this bird made me look twice... a very bedraggled Meadow Pipit on a neighbours wall. It had just flown up from a roadside puddle.
Well that's it for another week.....what excitement will next week produce!
