Blue Sunshine

Life is somewhat complicated at the moment; my mobile phone has ceased to function and I'm on lateshift... and the rares' continue. So rather than progress a mobile phone repair or relax before another shift on the front line I opted to revisit St Mary's.

As anticipated the red-flanked bluetail continues, albeit to a somewhat larger and noisier crowd of observers than Sunday morning.

Why do people feel the urge to rush the bird? This beauty has an established feeding routine and with patience, will stop close by inbetween insect sorties. Rant over.

What a cracker this bird is...

I see so many of these every spring/autumn but have never managed a decent shot, you get it as a big rarity in the UK and fire off these beauties...........life is just not fair sometimes..........
