Flooding in

The easterly element in the winds has brought in spring migrants a-plenty.

On this weekends tour into Essex we found several returning birds. Among the Hobby, Arctic Tern, Common Terns, House Martins, Swallows, Sand Martins, Yellow Wagtails, Sedge Warblers, Blackcaps, Garden Warbler, Whitethroats and Chiffchaffs there was a very confiding Little Ringed Plover. However the icing on the cake had to be the 7 or 8 daytime singing Nightingales we saw.

Milky eyed stripping female

This Adder was one of four we saw on the Essex Birding Day Tour we did the other week. It’s a female judging by her ‘hips’ and general colouring, However her eyes are very milky indicating she’s about to shed her skin.
