Catching up locally.....

Wow what a Bank Holiday Monday! Blue skies, warm.......

I got up and headed to the forest.....


Next week........





Lots of Warblers.... record shot of a Lesser Whitethroat....


Quite a few Warblers, Common Whitethroat, Lesser Whitethoat, Garden Warler, Blackcap etc.... Lots of  Green Woodies laughing.

I was really pleased to see two Common Terns on the raft and they appear to be a pair. The two pairs of Grebes are still on nests. So hopefully next Saturday there will be Grebe chicks!











So I popped to Rye Meads. The resident Greeter....




Terns back at Rye Meads. Alas the rafts are full of Black Headed gulls


There were 4 Little Ringed Plovers and a Stock Dover at Draper Hide.....

Grey Heron going for a walk



There were two Great Crested Grebes (unusual at RM) I also saw a Garganey.....

This coot was posing below a singing Garden Warbler


Sedge Warbler....






Despite all the warblers I heard/saw today I only heard one Willow Warbler which was sad.

Cracking bit of local birding.
