Wheatears Whilst Waiting.......


Wheatears are always a welcome sight during spring and this evening was nice with a male Whinchat and Redstart joining them to forage albeit briefly. Cuckoo, Swallows, Sand Martins, Willow Warblers, Common Buzzards, Kestrel, Lapwing, Curlew and drumming Snipe all added to the mix.






Dartford Warblers are rather active out on the heaths of late and Firecrests show in nearly every wood I pass through on may out to the heaths as per the individual below. 


But and it is a very big but this is all just the supporting cast for another 4 weeks until the interesting stuff arrives and I hope to find myself sat with a brew enjoying (fingers crossed) the warmth of the sun and Hampshire-Blue sky above over-looking a nice block of timber waiting for a ceratin species to lift out, heres hoping....
