A Pre-Breakfast Wander

Actually went birding today! Didn't see anything of note really, but Black Hole Marsh at 05:30 this morning looked STUNNING...

Oooozing peace and tranquility

It was nice to see fledged Blackcaps (two families), Reed Warbler, and the three Oystercatcher chicks still looking good.  Two Sand Martins over the marsh were the first I've seen here for over a month, and a Siskin north over was a bit of an odd one for June!

I checked three new Swallow nests today, two still on eggs and one with really small chicks in.  Another brood of Blue Tits were ringed on Saturday too, and I confirmed the two broods I've already ringed have fledged.
