April Goodies

A couple of "oldies" from April 2006... two American species to reach the east coast of the UK.

Killdeer - Blakeney Fresh Marsh, Norfolk 09th April - a cracking wader by all standards! No spring is complete without a twitch to Norfolk!

Blue-winged teal - St Mary's Wetland, Northumberland 22nd April - I spent hours with this dapper duck over the seven days that the bird was present, and it was only on this date that it came close enough to the screen for reasonable images to be taken.

I wonder what April 2010 might bring...
