Long-tailed Tit

Lovely light this morning. A kettle of six vocal Common Buzzards just north of the river and plenty of Long-tailed Tit family feeding parties.

Shameful Twitch

Birding this year has been poor for me as I've not been able to get out as much as I'd have liked. The weekend was looking "busy" but if this little blighter at Holme NWT stuck around long enough I might be able to squeeze in a lightening visit. Arctic Warbler as a mainland bird that hangs around is a rare event so shameful as the dash&tick might be, I ought to give it a go.
Luckily the bird obliged after a short wait and a guy named Colin shared me an image he took.
Personally I struggled to watch the bird let alone get any photgraphs so thanks Colin.
