Boxing match

I know a lot of people who when asked about their favourite animal tell me it’s the Brown Hare.

On tour recently we saw these two putting on a really good old fashioned gloves off boxing display.

On Fire

The grey misty dank days of late autumn are lit up by the finding of the odd Firecrest. This one was in the Holm Oaks at Holkham Hall. What a delight to see. They have to be my favourite British Bird.

Breaking Cover

Sat in the hide last week as we looked out over the marshes this little fella broke cover. He came out of his hidi-hole and stepped into the sunshine for a bit of a preen; and who can blame him. Some good weather over the last few weeks here in Norfolk. However, experience tells me we’ll pay for it in the long run.

Colour on a grey day

A small group of Waxwings gave a bit of colour on a grey day last week. Back-lit as they were they never gave wonderful photographic oppertunities but my word they are beautiful creatures.

Sniper

The Isles of Scilly must be the best place in the country for photographing Jack Snipe. Taken on our tour there last week.

A touch of Red Eye

Walking around the beautiful Island of Bryher in the Isles of Scilly last week we decided to leave early and return to the island of St Mary’s. It turned out to be a good decision as we chanced upon one of those birds that is the epitome of the Scilly Isles in October; the thing that drives every bird watcher that goes there to search every field corner and each sycamore tree. A Nearctic bird … a bird from America. On the 10th October this year that Nearctic visitor manifested itself in the form of a splendid Red-eyed Vireo.

Common Colours

Common Seals come in all sorts of colours. These two were on the beach among a whole host of Grey Seals the other week. One was what I would call normal the other was quite orange. It’s often thought the orange individuals originate from the Thames Estuary where there is a high proportion of these individuals. The colour is thought to be derived from iron staining.

The orange animal seemed to be covered in a larger than normal share of flies so I checked him over as best I could just to see if he had any injuries that might be attracting them. He seemed to be free of any sores or cuts. Maybe it was his brighter attire the flies preferred.
