Not been out and about as much as I would have liked since my last post because after some gardening on Saturday afternoon I yet again got a herniated disc.I have to hobble around for a couple of days leaning to the right and swearing a lot to get rid of the pain.
Took this shot at Baddesley Clinton on Wednesday after failing to find any Spotted Flycatchers.It seems that this Swallow was already planning it's flight back to Africa.
A Saturday morning visit to Marsh Lane (pre disc trouble) found the place pretty quiet.The Whooper Swan was on the CP pool and a Little Grebe was catching breakfast by the N Causeway hide.
I hobbled down there again this morning having got fed up staying in all day.There were a couple of LR Plovers on the CP pool.
In the marsh a Common Redshank showed well.
A Great Crested Grebe drifted by the front of Oak hide.
A Tern chick seemed to like Ben Dolan's bungalows on the CP pool islands.
