Walking with Wildlife
The ramblings of a man with a camera.
May 01st - 06th
Not much to report for the first five days. 6th was a better day with a Bullfinch just this side of the Bypass and a Jay just after I'd crossed the Bypass. No photo's but nice to see them. Robins and Nuthatches filled most of the card today with one or two of them not too bad. I managed to catch a Hoverfly asleep and a Campion just as the wind dropped. The Dandelion seed head looked as if it was ready to disperse before being caught in a shower. It was just starting to dry out when I caught it. Pictures on facebook
Lifetime First - Whimbrel. Seen from quite a distance but, after looking at the poor snapshots, some of the waders in the estuary were not the Eurasian Curlew that I thought they were. Now I've got to go back and try to get a decent photo
