LBC’s

In Australia we saw plenty of Little Black Cormorants; LBC’s. They appear to be a sort of cross between our own Cormorant and Shags; showing features of both.

Blue Velvet

Looking for an entrance into a reserve in the Blue Mountains I pulled us into a dead end street. I parked up and we consulted the oracle … Google maps. As we mused over which way to go next a bird flew low over the road in front of us; we disagreed as to its identification. It had settled inside a low thick pine. We waited. When it eventually made a reveal it has spontaneously multiplied into three birds. When we finally got a good look we decided they were female/immature Satin Bowerbirds.

We’ve all seen wildlife documentaries showing Bowerbirds collecting blue objects. Satin Bowerbirds are no exception. Blue items to match their saphire blue eyes.

It’s a first for me.

The first bird to greet me as I arrived in Australia this month was the Superb Fairy-Wren. Never has a bird been so aptly named.

beating the blues

Coming back from a bird filled holiday is never easy; even if you do have a to-die-for job. I wasn’t helped by the relentless cascade of news, comments and photos relating to a Bluethroat just inside the Lincolnshire border. The fact it was a male and quite fearless gave me itchy feet. So on Wednesday I jumped in the car to scratch the itch and went to see the little chap. I wasn’t disappointed.

One for the butterfly connesseur

This is a butterfly that is for butterfly lovers. This is a butterfly that wouldn’t turn your head … unless you were another Dingy Skipper of course.

Bursting

Early Purple Orchids were getting ready to burst the other week. They weren’t quite in their prime … yet. Although by now they will be. These beautiful flowers are fore bringers of all our Orchids.

Woodie

This little Woodlark was sat quietly feeding in the grass by one of the paths on the heath last week. It has to be said though the beauty of the song far outshines the plumage.
