Thrush rush

iPhone- scoped

Nice venture to Holy Island on a sunny Sunday - after a week of work prevented any catch up with goodies, dividends in the form of a full UK tick - Thrush Nightingale. Great views upon arrival- surprising to find it feeding on the beach edge!

Later I was at the "half moon slack" near the Snook - enjoying yellow-browed warbler and red-breasted flycatcher... happy days!

Purple patch

Messed up with Minsmere plans last month, so a bit of luck with a second chance twitch - so sandwiched between a family party and an impending night shift, Lincs was on the agenda for this morning - and success.

Few bearded tit on the walk round the reeds and then some fine wader watching between swamphen appearances from the reeds. Managed to avoid the "one show" film crew too, so good all round.

Swamphen still looked a big brute despite being on the far Reedbed edge, so iPhone images only...
