Off to the Bill then, to do a short seawatch and then some bush bashing. The seawatch was rather productive, with the best being a flock of 5 Pomarine Skuas. Sadly, they were distant and below are a couple of really crap record shots of 3 of the 5.
3 Great Skuas were the other birds of note.
|Another crap record shot. Light was awful. Missed some bits and pieces after I had given up, but it was time to check them bushes.|
And it was shit. Plus, the heavens opened and I got a severe drenching.
On the subject of skuas, saw this Arctic Skua off the Chesil yesterday late afternoon.
|The record shots have gotten slightly better here.|
Now for some other stuff. Well, actually a bit of a catch up with some pics. Don't worry, there are a couple of good pics here. And yes, the rest are crap.
|Whimbrel at Portland Bill. The day everyone, bar the lucky few, were dipping on Citrine Wagtail.|
|Female Broad-bodied Chaser in the Obs garden the same day.|
|Reed Warbler at Lodmoor last weekend. If only it was a Great.|
|After work, in the week, have been going to Lodmoor in the hope I might find a good wader. This spring though, has been terrible locally for passage waders and this Lapwing was as good as it got. Man, it was dire.|
|The best bird of the week on Lodmoor was this White Wagtail on Wednesday evening. As you can see from the photo, it was very distant.|
And finally, a couple of nice Dunlin images from Ferrybridge yesterday. Well, I think they're nice. :-)
