Saturday in the Spring Sun

I met up with Dave and Joy this morning and we went to the Lee Valley Spring Wildlife event.

I suppose for some of the girlies who read this blog this will have been the highlight.







but for me it was the rescue bats they had which were coolest. Around the reserve we saw Lesser and Common Whitethroats and also lots of Sand Martins.

We then went to the Rainbow & Dove in Harlow for a drink in the sun and I took Dave and Joy to the guaranteed Green Sandpiper at Rye Meads which wasn't present! Still we saw a Northern Wheatear which was a year and patch tick.

When you mentioned us "girlies" and the highlight, I thought you were talking about the owl.

Don't you worry Pete! You'll still be my 'highlight' (though I must admit, that I don't have a clue who that Dave is).
Fantastic pictures, looks like you had a lovely day!
