A few more steps along the road...

''I'll start with a visit to Blacktoft Sands...

July 29th: a reported curlew sandpiper was a long way off from Marshland hide and, to add insult to injury, the bird was keen to show me a reverse view  when I eventually worked out where it was! [Centre of image, left of godwit]

Black-tailed godwit and marsh harriers.

August 6th: Blacktoft Sands again: 

Green sandpipers, spotted redshanks, stock dove and other bits and pieces

August 7th Nosterfield Quarry site 1:

Lapwings, gulls a few other birds but no osprey. I'll try again soon!

August 9th: Nosterfield Quarry site 2

Osprey - not as close as I would like but still... Well pleased.

Wild plum


Any ideas?

House martin - rear view - they're all the rage!

August 12th: In our garden

Maybe it knew the date and thought keeping a low profile in a private garden was an excellent idea... A grey partridge was wandering round the garden. Fairly near the house it was spotted by Sheila who called me certain, as she rightly was, that she'd never seen one in the garden before.

All this came after another encounter earlier in the day when she spotted a female sparrowhawk perched on the greenhouse roof. I was just coming out through the garage side door and had a brilliant view. Sparrowhawks are quite often seen - usually zipping low over the garden; not often perched in full view like today.

My wife and I want to show profound gratitude and appreciation, ever since the pandemic things have always been very difficult for me and my family, I lost my job during the Covid19 stay at home pandemic and it was very difficult for me to secure a new job that was how life became terrible for me, But thank God for bringing this man into my life, Mr Bernie Doran. I read so many good reviews online on how he has been helping a lot of people both small business owners to gain financial income so I contacted him on WhatsApp and that was the day my life change began, I started with the lowest investment plan which was $1,500 and within a week I earned a profit of $18,500 on his trade management system, since then I have been making huge profits with the help of MR BERNIE DORAN, Now I can do basically anything I want for myself and my family, I just can't thank you enough sir, may God continue to reward you. I highly recommend to everyone that needs financial aid, contact him on:
