Red-backed Shrike - Biggleswade Common

A great find by Steve Heath and I think the first twitchable one since the one about half a mile further north in 1996. Looks like an adult female .

Cuckoo at Willington

Taken from the river close to the Lock at Willington. Not sure if this is a female or a first year bird. Either way, a pleasant surprise this late in the season.

Just for a laugh...

A couple of record shots (taken with the 200mm lens I use for butterflies) of the two Marsh Harriers on the deck together in Rookery.....and one of the birds in flight, the darker one, a very dark, even chocolate brown and with immaculate tail and flight feathers, so presumably a juvenile female (as it was the same size as the other bird which had faded plumage and displaced tail feathers, so presumably an adult female)
