Yellow Browed Warbler

The Garden Turned up a Willow Warbler first thing in the morning,that in its self was nice, as the lack of migrants due to the Westerly winds makes anything seem special.
Then later in the day I heard the distinctive call of one of my favourite birds
Yellow Browed Warbler. But then it made it even more special , as I obtained a shot I had been after for years , but happens so quickly, hovering underneath a leaf.

Willow Warbler

4 Pied Wagtails came to roost in the garden.

Turnstones save the day

Having spent a couple of hours in the morning visiting some of the best Migrant hotspots.
With nothing more than a Whinchat, in fact only a Whinchat.
I decided to visit one of my favorite local sites.Nothing special, but at least the Turnstones and Rock Pipits, helped me burn some data onto a cf card.

Crossbills and Boats

After a few hours trying to relocate
the Booted Warbler.
Returned back to base to find these
Crossbills on my local patch.

A friend invited me out on his boat.
Quiet an experience, as its not the biggest boat in the world.
All these images hand held

Im currently working on updating the structure of my Website

The site was , I think rather basic and clumsy.
So the Gallery is being re- structured.
This will probably take some time.
But I hope it will prove to be of some interest, and worth revisiting
on a regular basis.
Well Ive given in to the Blog bug
I thought I would never ever have a blog
Would I ever have the time to update it ?
Well due to questions from clients who would like to see what Im up to
Here it is !

Im going to do my best to update when ever I can
Thanks for Looking.
