Good count of 34 Sanderling at Pilots Point, also 41 Dunlin and 4 Ringed Plover
Unfortunately they were very regularly disturbed by walkers but for some reason kept coming back for more.
Female Reeve's Pheasant popped out briefly from the undergrowth
Found this dead Lizard on one of the tracks and brought it home.
When I first found it it was quite a shade of blue which was what intruiged me, not to mention the size which was just over an inch and a half long. Presumably a young one or maybe an exotic escape? Looking up Sand and Common Lizards on the interweb couldnt find any that were blue!
This male Bullfinch has spent the last few days hanging around here. This is only the second garden record after a one day bird in January.
Baby House Sparrow hiding in foliage
It has been funny watching this Blackbird trying to get a beak full of pellets. When it is full it tries for another and so drops one or two then it picks more up until full again, then tries to pick up another and drops some more again. Seriously this can go on for a couple of minutes!
Black heads dont come in when we are in view and have to abort when they see us
We are getting some of the now famous Dunnock shenanigans going on in the garden. Unfortunately as would be expected this is occuring deep in shadow so shots not great quality
Not sure he should be putting that there
Junior in the background looking on
Junior can you keep the noise down, cant you see we are busy
Got news of a Savi's Warbler singing at Lodmoor. As it was already around 08.45 time was of the essence if I were to get there before it packed up for the morning. Luckily on arrival the bird was still singing. It had been showing but difficult to photograph but now it was not even being seen. My attention lasted about 5 minutes before I was distracted by some rather low passing Swifts
