A Mixed Bag.

We went up to Somerset and Gloucester last week-end, hoping for early
 Dragonflies and Butterflies but it was so cold and windy that nothing was flying. 
It was a bit disappointing but we still saw some good birds.
There were quite a few young around and we even saw signs of Beavers at Cotswold Water Park.

CUCKOO AT BUTTERMILK HILL.


 There were 2 Cuckoos at Buttermilk Hill yesterday.
In my haste to locate one after I heard it call, I nearly 
broke my neck by stepping in a Rabbit hole and falling over. 
Today my knee looks like a cricket ball.
Well worth it though as they seem to get fewer every year.

CATCHING UP.

Here are a few shots from the last couple of weeks.The Great White Egret is some way off. 
The Ring Ouzel would also have been closer had it not been for an elderly couple who 
flushed them after I had spent ages creeping up on them (the birds not the couple!).

LITTLE BUNTING

Despite it keeping to the bushes, I did manage to get 
a few shots of the Little Bunting at Gulval.
What a lovely marked bird it is.
