Radde's @ Shingle Street

One of the more challenging species I have attempted to photograph and after only fleeting glances and faint calls from the bird at Burnham Overy on Friday, I decided to try again, this time at Shingle Street in Suffolk. Poor images but a good bird to see.

Burnham Overy Dunes

Superb late afternoon spent around Burnham Overy dunes where some of the migrants seemed very tame. The Radde's Warbler was heard and showed very briefly but needs to take some lessons from these two posers.

Patiently waiting in view of the sheep field this evening for the swallows and starlings to come into roost at the settling lagoon.

Small Tortoiseshell

These have been scarce all year but in the past day or two there has been quite a few emerge near the pumping station in Willington.

I Know, I Know !

Yes I know the picture is rubbish but I still think it's a HB !! Two south over Willington at 3:15 this afternoon but very high.

Looking for Migrants

I spent some time at Willington GP at the weekend trying to connect with a fly-over Osprey or Honey Buzzard but had to make do with these old kites !

Yikes !

Can't say I've seen anything like this before. Taken by Sharon earlier in the year and just retreived from the point-and-shoot.
