I won't have time to go out today - but have just about got time to tell all about yesterday, mostly because there isn't much to tell!!
I had a very enjoyable two hour wander around the Beer Cemetery Fields - I was hoping for just the teeniest slice of east coast action, but it wasn't to be. It did 'feel rare' though.
My final totals were (grounded unless stated):
6 Song Thrush
120 Meadow Pipit
6 Siskin (over)
And a couple more photos from recent days. I took a photo of the Yellow-legged Gull with my Lumix too, and it shows the comparative mantle shades well with Great and Lesser Black-backed Gulls, and Herring Gulls in the frame too...
|The Yellow-legged is slap bang in the middle|
Also I forgot to post this moth picture. Last Friday I had the moth trap out, but wasn't expecting much in it as the night was cold. I was dead right - there wasn't much. Pleasingly though, one of the two immigrants in the trap wasn't a Silver Y! It was a Pearly Underwing, only about my third for the garden...
|It looks a bit weird as I had to use flash|
Don't want to say anything on here (in case I jinx it!), but hopefully I have some very exciting times up and coming. It has meant I've been snowed under for a few days - but it will be worth it...
