The Sedge Warblers were going nuts this morning. Every reed and scrub seemed to have one in there. A few pics follow unashamedly because i never thought i would get a decent one of this flighty bird.
An absolute stunner this bird, beautiful.
Further on up the links path to East Chevington there was a good number of Wheatears. Another beautiful bird to watch.
There was a swarm of flies so most of the birds were having a feeding frenzy. Fantastic to see.
This Meadow Pipit was just sitting in the bush and virtually letting the flies land in his mouth.
Fly to the right about to land in his mouth
Two Kestrels patrolled the grasslands making a few successful sorties
And this McCoo lazily chewed on the grass.
A view of East Chevington Nature reserve for those that haven't been.
Flower wise there wasn't much to see yet. This is some type of Speedwell but not sure which yet. I will wait for Ispot to id or Dean who seems rather good at this.
And this Lesser Celandine (Ranunculus ficaria). You thought birds were hard to id, try learning all the wildflower names. Yeegads.
So an absolutely fan-dune-tastic morning with the sun beating down and the Sedge warblers serenading me along the way. A lucky man i am.
