A touch of red and a touch of pink.

Well what another glorious day yesterday was,not much doing birdwise-but you have to at least get out for a walk.Hoveringham railway pit seemed appropriate considering i still cant walk brilliantly !! Anyway there wasnt alot doing couple of Yellow wags,quite a few Willow Warblers...1 Greenshank and 3-4 Little Gulls,i got a touch of sunburn not comparible at all to the beautiful pink hue of this delicate bird.

Summer plumage-yep in my shorts.

Well what a glorious friday....and suprisingly even better on saturday.Not really much doing locally so just to enjoy the beautiful weather,decided to have a wander around the sailing lake (i was informed the GWE was still knocking about,but more elusive than ever,if i see it il post pics)Anyway it was my first outing of the year in shorts and t-shirt-first of many hopefully !! Nothing major seen....three Yellow wags,two Willow Warblers,and one Sedge Warbler (lovely to see them back) three Sand Martins through and Little Ringed Plovers nesting on a very small patch of waste land.Anyway never mind the birds......days like this feed my soul!
