August ending


Bit of a struggle all told this week, with tiredness, birds not wanting to be found, and a new camera. The tiredness will persist at least till dawn breaks around 08:00 am, the birds will have probably scarpered by then and the new camera is going to be fun.  Not for you, and not for me having to process the buggers, or from the extra weight I'll have to carry around (and that's not just me getting more rotund!).

A disappointing 63 species this week, highlight 5, that's 1, 2, 3... er hang on I'll have to use my fingers here... 4, 5 Hobby in the air at one time over the Ornamental Waters.  Captain Tim's hunch was right they did get it on in that local and while not quite Lakenheath in the early summer, a fantastic air show none the less (including as it did 2 Sparrowhawk).

More Redstart, Whinchat, Spotted Flycatcher, Yellow Wagtails (in danger of becoming the most common wagtail sp on the flats) and a Tree Pipit. Nothing new, nothing rare, but there is always tomorrow....
