A warm Sunday

What a glorious day!

I was round Dad's this morning, it was lovely sitting in his garden.

This afternoon I went down Rye Meads. The Wood Sandpiper wasn't about (really chuffed I went yesterday now!). But two Green Sandpipers, a Green Woodpecker, Kingfisher and a Black Necked Grebe were nice sightings. Actually a Great Crested Grebe at RM is a good find.

Comma Butterfly

Small Tortoiseshell

Little Grebe


Loads of Tufted Duck chicks

These look fine to me. The out of focus tufty adult in front of the chicks is probably due to depth of field issues caused by the aperture used, or movement.

Nice butterfly pics again, Pete and the dabchick is looking rather cute - one of my favourite species.
