Wheatear @ Blow's Downs

An early drive up to the paddocks at Blow's downs, Dunstable to see a Northern Wheatear. A nice male that kept its distance - not helped by frisky horses galloping around its favoured area ! Peach, blue/grey and black - a great colour combination, methinks.


The weather continues to stay fair, but change is, apparently, on the way. At Dstw, new arrivals included a fly-over calling Little-ringed Plover ( a week late) and a few more Sand Martin (never lingering). A pair of Grey Wagtail hunted on the wader scrape.
