Thought it about time I posted some recent photos as have been rather busy of late. Earlier this week this beautiful kingfisher had been caught by the local ringers and I managed to time it perfectly. Thanks to them for the chance to see such a beautiful creature up close.
This kestrel has been a regular sighting around Black Hole Marsh
and a spotted redshank seems to land regularly right in front of me on the river
while greenshank has also been present recently
A close curlew on the river
and some deer opposite the tower hide have been nice to see again
And finally away from patch (unfortunately) the Swannery produced a distant hen harrier which flew over north last thursday
and this beautiful scaup was also present there earlier this week
