Fallow

Herd animals are always difficult to photograph. They never look the same way! This little group of Fallow Deer sheltering from early spring sunshine and framed by the tree caught my attention.

Scaup

A bird we have seen on our trip to the Solway each year, in varying numbers, is the Scaup. A winter visitor to our shores; although a few, and I mean a few, breed in Scotland each year. This makes them the UK’s rarest breeding duck. This one was photographed on our tour to the Solway last weekend.

Redpoll & Brambling

A couple of nice birds on feeders the other day. A Redpoll and a Brambling which was well on its way to attaining breeding garb.

Egg Laying Dragons in October

It’s not unusual but still not common to see a Southern Hawker egg laying in October. Photographed last week.

Smiling Gull

At Sheringham last week a Herring Gull landed in front of me that sported jewellery. Not a nondescript, lets camouflage it ring but a bright orange slap your face ring that brightened a very dull day. He acquired his bling in London the ‘T’ standing for North Thames Gull Group, so not that far travelled. He posed for me, first the right side then the left. He even smiled for the camera. http://www.ntgg.org.uk/cgi-bin/map.cgi?p=recmap&t=r&r=GR94308

Small giant

So small yet so tenuous; this small Goldcrest had no doubt flown the North Sea before refuelling in cliff top bushes. It never ceases to amaze me why birds, especially ones as small as this, put themselves at risk in such a big way.

More goodies to come?

After the gift laden easterlies of early September we’ve now entered a phase of unpredictable South Westerly’s. The birds here on the hill and beyond that arrived on the easterlies have gradually dripped away to their wintering grounds. The confiding Whinchat below was the last to leave.

No doubt an easterly element to the wind in October will bring more goodies. I await them with anticipation.

Arrivals

.

The arrival of returning waders signals the end of our long warm summer days. Gathering on the coastal marshes are Black tailed Godwits; some still resplendent in their breeding dress.

As we waited yesterday for birds to come closer the light was failing and clouds gathering to the west; a storm was on its way. A Sparrowhawk took the opportunity to hunt the scrape before the rain arrived and the Godwits detonated into the air.
