A Bank Holiday Bundle from ANR

My first spot was a lone oystercatcher seen from the 1st screen on the main path to which I later added another wader, a little ringed plover, seen in the ridge & Furrow field.

Over the morning I was able to add another two warblers to my tally for the season. Clockwise from top-left: garden warbler, chiffchaff, whitethroat with nesting material and another Cetti’s warbler.

This dead stem of an elderberry bush near the bridge on the main path is a favourite wren perch. If you didn’t see it straight away you couldn’t help but hear it.

Being able to get my bike down the path alongside the Ridge & Furrow field has expanded my range somewhat. This time I had another sight of a male linnet and a rather splendid male greenfinch.

To finish, two birds from the garden today (Tues). This female sparrow is new in the garden this week and since I started putting out mealworms several starlings have been turning up regularly. When the light catches them they are so colourful.
