30 minutes

Half an hour at West Hartford produced the following species this evening:

1 SEO hunting fields to south, east and west of the pool,
2 shelduck - I expect that these will breed in the area again this year,
5 sand martin (flying south - do they know something we don't?),
pheasant,
lbbg/bhg/hg/cg,
coal tit,
blue tit,
16+ teal,
grey heron,
magpie,
jackdaw,
carrion crow,
magpie,
reed bunting,
chaffinch,
kestrel,
sparrowhawk,
2 snipe (put up by the owl).

With a heavy sea fret moving in from the east, it was actually quite cold this evening!

Thanks CB! Thought I'd post an "arty/atmospheric" one today.

Yes, I thought the black and white looked good on the SEO. Have you tried just showing the eye colour on black and white?

Alan - yes, I almost uploaded that version, but decided to stick to simple B&W. Maybe next time!
