Once again my week has been rather full of work, work and more work. Haven't even got round to doing the ironing, hoovering or the garden yet, although I did manage to sort my pictures from last weekends visit to Big Waters were we had a great walk round on Sunday adding Whitethroat, Lesser Whitethroat and Swift to the Patch List. So here are a few pictures from the day
As you can probably see the Common Tern on the right has a ring on it and after a lot of photographing I have managed to get the ring number and passed it on to Alan J who hopefully can get it from the BTO so we can find its origin. Note the other Terns left leg (poor thing). There is another Tern there with a ring also, so will attempt to get that if it decides to stay.
Plenty of singing Sedge Warblers
A very short video of a Sedge Warbler singing and Birders talking
One of five Pochard that have been seen a couple of times last week
A welcome addition to any birders morning as it pops up beside you and belts out its amazing song louder than most singers and doesn't need amplification
