A visit to Windmill Farm

We paid a short visit to Windmill Farm today and got the very obliging Hoopoe, Thanks Andy.
The whole time we were there a Cuckoo was calling but we could not locate it.
Also saw our first Dragonfly of the year, it was one of the Chasers, but too fast for us.

Small can be Beautiful.

No birds this post but lots of insects. The first picture is a Bee-Fly, a new one for me. John

Week-ends Birding

This image is not as sharp as I would have liked but I have included it because it is a bit different (for a Dipper). It was seeing off a rival.

Hare Today, Gone Tomorrow.

Went birding with my brother Chris today and finally caught up with the Diver at St. Andrew's pool. Chris took me to a secret location for the Hares. I think he would have blind-folded me but I had to drive.
