The first of a small number of Swifts sallied overhead. A female Sparrowhawk failed to surprise anything much. Walking back to the car a single Sandwich Tern was resting on rocks, my third year tick of the morning.
I had a quick walk further round adding Yellow Wagtail and a Common Sandpiper which was sat on the outfall towards Ulrome. A bit of a surprise on the coast.
Down by the drain I jibbed Whitethroat and Reed Warbler - both being elusive after quick bursts of song. Next time...
Last weekend I spent plenty of time in the garden and I did a little macro photography and managed this shot of Eristalis pertinax with the diagnostic face stripe.
|Pretty happy with this one!|
