A Long Awaited Update

Its been a while since I posted here but have still been out and about and mostly with the Olympus.  Have been posting regularly to twitter but as some of you have asked and don't follow twitter I thought I'd put a few photos taken since the last posting on here.

A wheatear today on Seaton Wetlands

There have been quite a few snipe on Black Hole Marsh lately

and plenty of yellow wagtails too

A redstart at Lamberts Hill Castle

as well as some spotted flycatchers

A few sedge warblers have been passing through recently

and the little grebes appear to have been successful this year on the reserve.  Only the smallest chick appears to still be dependent on its parents.

There have been a few little ring plovers  

and this is one of the cattle egrets that hung around for a while.

There have been plenty of common sandpipers

and green sandpipers.

This white buzzard is regularly present over the marshes

and we are doing quite well for greenshanks at the moment. 

Finally the ruff thats been present of late but always distant.
