Been out locally a few times in the great weather but have struggled to find any decent birds to photograph.Visits to Brueton Park NR ,Packwood House NT , Earlswood Lakes and Baddesley Clinton NT have been very disappointing all very quiet.
Particularly worrying is that several local spots that use to have loads of Swallows visiting for the Summer have either non at all or just the odd bird.
Did have some success.Another shot of the Long-tailed Tits that visit the back garden.This one was a little damp from the rain that was falling.
Did manage my first shots of the year of a Blackcap. This one unfortunately picked a gloomy spot to finally land and sing out but great to see.
Yesterday morning I went to Hatton Locks for a walk round. No Swallows here as well but the morning was saved when I found a pair of Grey Wagtails busily finding food for their chicks.
