Not a lot to report this month but nevertheless here's few reminders of July.
|The North Wall has been generally quiet but it's always a pleasure to simply enjoy the early morning or evening light. (my favourite times)|
A Whimbrel has been present in Whites Creek all the month.
Black Tailed Godwits have been noted on most visits, some in splendid summer plumage.
A Common Tern is a 'regular' fishing in Breech Pool.
Five Cattle Egret or more have been feeding in the fields on grasshoppers...here's just three.
A young Grey Heron in long grass.
Little Egrets are always present.
On the home front juvenile Robins are assuming adult plumage and already parents or siblings are chasing each other out from 'their' territory.
|Juvenile Greenfinches are regular visitors to the bird bath.|
|A Woodpigeon has successfully nested in one of our trees and three squabs have not left the close proximity of the nest for the past two weeks.|
...and Sloes are ripening in the sunshine.
Finally on July 24, I heard a willow Warbler singing quietly in the garden and very quickly it showed up long enough for me to grab the camera and obtain these two shots
