I actually twitched today. Ok it wasn't very far about 8 miles or so. The bird in question was a Red Footed Falcon and I had never seen one. It was sat in a tree and I could see its tail great! I thought walking along would help but it was well hidden. Walking 50 yards the other way it came into view.
So that's a lifer before breakfast! Oh a few photos.
Common Tern, posing!
Male Tufted Duck
So after lunch I went to Rye Meads. Lots of young birds, a Hobby, Redshank, Lapwings and just for St the famed tame Heron
You can see where it was standing.
These are young Mallard but I was pleased to see young Pochard about and a Little Grebe was nesting on a Tern raft.
These were a bit agressive.
Oh the Heron had moved by the time I came back, he had moved along way eh!
