All preperation

At the moment a lot of my time is being put into organising the tours later in the year. However, the day tours around Norfolk are still happening. The fourth, or is it the fifth, visit to the Brecks in south Norfolk this last week probably gave the best prolonged views of Goshawk I’ve had in many years. A female and two males. I hope they breed but as yet I’ve not seen them in ‘full on’ display just cavorting, so to speak. By necessity the photograph below is taken at (great) distance.

Some good views of Great Grey Shrike too this week but again a little distant to photograph.

Are you dancin’?

Don’t you just love Great crested Grebes in spring?

On fire

I must have seen many, many Firecrests in my time but last week in France I actually watched one. In fact I watched two. A pair … displaying to one another. Underneath the canopy of pines and oaks the sun shone through in shafts to light the forest floor in dappled squares. Flitting in and out of the light the male chased the female; his crown stripe gaping with excitement and luminous in intensity.
