Where else would you wish to watch Kingfishers and Kites than from a Hot-tub on the River Dee in Wales. A break at Rivercatcher has this to offer and does it really matter that it rained during most of our recent week-end stay!! photos  taken earlier  see:

A Mega Twitch

I have never classed myself as a twitcher but I was recently drawn to Yorkshire to see a bird called a White Tailed Lapwing – and yes I had never heard of it either!! It breeds in the Middle East and normally migrates further east for Winter. It was only the tenth ever recorded in Britain and a first for Yorkshire. I spent two hours in the public hide and really enjoyed filming an unusual subject in perfect conditions. See photos in Gallery.

A Berry Feast

This is now the time of year when there is an abundance of Autumn fruits.
This weeks blog photo is of a Whitethroat feeding on Raspberries. That bird has now moved on and in its place we have Wood Pigeons devouring Elderberries – both adults and juveniles. for gallery photos
