Broom evening 25th June

Juv terns, one with, one without - colour rings !

Brief visit to Broom this evening in the hope the Laughing Gull seen at Grafham Water on Sunday may be lurking amongst the gull colony - no luck. Black-tailed Godwit present for a short period of time on Peacock Island. Juv terns and gulls all over. Hobby seen to take a juv tern almost as Martin Stevens and myself were leaving - strange sight of it trying to carry the tern away, but it did !

Yellow-legged Gull

This second-summer Yellow-legged Gull was one of three present this afternoon at Coronation ClP. 23rd June 2007 by Steve Blain.

At least 8 Hobbies were over Rookery ClP this afternoon. 23rd June 2007 by Steve Blain.

Little Owl

After a Barn Owl had taken over its usual hole, this Little Owl has become increasingly elusive. He was easy to find today though. Hill Foot, 23rd June 2007 by Steve Blain.

Lovely light this evening at Wood Lane

Lesser Whitethroat at MVCP

Nice bird, great views, (almost) no light.. :-( MVCP, 16th June 2007 by Martin Green.

Cuckoo at Willington

This Cuckoo was calling from the poplars at the settling lagoon on Saturday morning and was being mobbed by a Sedge Warbler that was not very happy.

DWR June 07, Whitethroat

Cat C2, proof of breeding

Was at Roxton, 4th June 2007, photographing Scarce Chasers, when these Barnies with two juvvies came sailing downstream along the Ouse from Roxton Lock. Difficult enough to count them if they stay on the lakes! I suspect we miss a few broods every year, would explain their rapid increase.

Red Kite at Bison Hill 3/6/07

I'd been photographing butterfies at Bison Hill, and had just got back to the car park when this Red Kite came drifting along the ridge just below me. Probably not completely in focus - had to focus manually, and a bit oversharpened, but still getting used to the camera.
