Doing my best to keep things moving and reflecting the changing season. I know only too well that at one moment spring seems slow to get going and then suddenly there's a crazy rush and things can get really hectic! Not quite there yet!
March 11th: Old Moor and Adwick-upon-Dearne with Barry
Old Moor featured an expected pair of lesser black-backed gulls.
Some of the ducks were looking good.
Med gull being bossy!
Kestrel at Adwick Washlands
Moi! Photo by Barry!
Rather damp pied alba wagtail, avocet, a redshank, a little egret...
...and a very shy chiffchaff
March 13th: St. Aidan's RSPB. Barry was hoping for owls and black-necked grebe. The grebe turned up and so did some other nice things. I'll start with a hare that was having a break from being a mad March hare.
Crow, reed bunting and quite a few stonechats!
Grebes. Great crested first.
I was rather pleased with myself to have found these bearded tits! Male
Adult female, I believe.
Finishing off...black-headed gull, very high up red kite and a lapwing.
