A really dire week for weather with wind in the north east and few good birding days. However, there were a few good times when I did get out with the camera, so for this blog just a few photos as reminders. There was one morning when the sun shone so I took advantage of the good light but it was still cold...
|Ringed Plovers nest on the Spit|
|Starling ...unsure which way to go.|
Such charismatic birds!
|Chaffinch in full song...dog walk...Slipe Field|
|Goldfinch...dog walk...Slipe Field|
|Whitethroat ...singing for a mate.|
|Great Crested Grebe...Whites Creek|
|Whimbrel...one of several in the harbour,currently.|
|Oystercatcher in the mud.|
|Little and Common Tern fishing in the 'new' channel.|
...but best of all and hence the title to this blog....The Swifts have arrived!!!
Not the greatest of photos but never easy birds to capture let alone on a dull miserable morning. The last of the summer visitors to arrive and always a real pleasure to see the first ones...great!
