At long last a week of dry weather and good sunshine giving the best photo opportunities this Winter on the 9th I checked my Adder site and was pleased to find two males enjoying the warmth. A Woodcock was also seen with Green Woodpeckers very vocal. Both Peacock and Small Tortoiseshell butterflies were active in the sun.
The best two days weather of the week were spent at Pennington Flash and Martin Mere but the birds targeted were too far away for the camera. I did film some of the species present but these were only the regular ones.Click here.
The garden has sprung to life this week with twenty three different species feeding on the 14th, which is the most this Winter and included our second Brambling. A Tawny Owl was present at 3.30am on the 12th! On Hopwood at dusk on the 15th three Buzzards were soaring and were very vocal.
