Interesting Rook - Tempsford 15/05/13

Rook with deformed bill seen in the field next to Tempsford Church, where this afternoon we dipped on the Spotted Flycatcher(s).  Awful photo - very amateurish attempt at digiscoping!

Turtle Dove

Nice to see this species in Willington having missed them last year.

First week of May at Bev's (DWE).

 A selection of images taken over the 1st,2nd,5th of May at Bev's (DWE). The Spoonbill stole the limelight, but the Lesser Whitethroat was a pleasing find adding it to the site list. 3 Oyc's still present (3rd bird on and off) and also up to 3 Common Sandpipers at a time. More Swifts now passing over.

Mixed singing Chiffchaff



This Chiffchaff was recorded at Stewartby Lake on 1st May by Martin Palmer.  Martin comments:
"The Chiffchaff was singing at Stewartby Lake c2.15pm, 1/5/13 with mixed Willow Warbler into its Chiffchaff vocals and was recorded by me just along from the Green Lane sluice, some 50m or so towards the sailing club corner – the bird was showing well and was quite clearly merely a Common Chiffchaff with dark legs and feet and no bright yellow in any of its plumage – so just Chiffy not a hybrid I’d say and it certainly didn’t show any Iberian tendancies! Worth listening out for if you’re down that way"
