A trip to Branscombe yesterday gave great views of this firecrest and thanks to Karen who was already on the yellow browed warbler at the back of the sewage works when we arrived, we also had a good view of that too. The firecrest was very obliging as you can see though the weather was rather dull and overcast for photos so was quite pleased with these results taken with my little V2.
Am pleased to say this sparrowhawk left without lunch on this occasion.
Below these are the best I could manage of the YBW when it was very high up in the trees by the entrance to the sewage works. Notice the obligatory one with the twig across the face.
Back on Black Hole Marsh this afternoon there was nothing out of the ordinary but weatherise it was rather a beautiful afternoon at last. This lone swan was on the pool by the sandmartin wall and the heron was in front of the study centre. Apart from these there were plenty of teal, black tailed godwits , redshanks and a pair of oyster catchers present on Black Hole Marsh
