With some time on my hands I've been out and about regardless of weather,which has been lousy and un-summer like.
My little stretch of the Brampton Valley has been quite productive bird wise including a breeding pair of Yellow Wagtails which apparently is the only reported pair in the county (so far) ! That should be sad news but I'm staying positive and just hoping others haven't got round to reporting any others (I hope), as yet I've struggled to get any images that are worth publishing.
Though I've managed some of a Grey Wagtail in it's usual spot.
Alas it's always been overcast on my visits so tampered with the WB in the field, not 100% with the results, what do you think?
The first one in glorious sunlight
Everything from Skylarks, Warblers, Yellowhammers, Song Thrush and more common species.
I got lucky with one Blackcap that hang about to do a spot of busking.
I've also had a solitary Oystercatcher and three Common Sandpipers, normally I can find both Spotted Flycatcher and Yellow Wagtails here but found neither, just a Treecreeper and Kingfisher were the other highlights....poor picture of an Osprey
