A few photos from this week all taken on Black Hole Marsh. I missed Steves sabines gull and also the arctic tern but I did manage todays merlin all be it rather distant. Most of these that follow are some of our common residents starting with a posing kestrel.
and the distant poor shot of the merlin just before it flew upstream
and Tim looking for it!
A great tit with a tasty meal
and one of our kingfishers
also with a meal
a blue tit
and a greenfinch
and a pied wagtail
Earlier this week a fox came running boldly up the estuary from Coronation Corner and disappeared into the readbeds further upstream
A pair of stomechats have been a regular sight on the way to the tower hide the last few days
and a few med gulls can be found on the river most of the time
and finally a common view of the kingfisher as it flashes by.
