South Beds Badlands

On the local patch early morning saw the first Willow Warbler followed by Goshawk and Red Kite. The mist rose revealing the graceful Mute Swan.

News broke of the first Redstart seen in the paddocks at Blow's downs. Digiscoping would have secured a reasonable image, instead a rather distant record shot will have to do !


This Woodpigeon was feeding on freshly emerged leaves.


Elsewhere, a Firecrest was very active, but stood still long enough for this image, albeit in rather low light.


Just as active was this singing Marsh Tit.

This Meadow Pipit defied convention by posing in a tree.
