Venus Pool etc - Patchwork...

Another local day picking up some new birds for the year. A 'not so dire' Ruff got the day going very nicely.

Venus Pool could still do with another two or three inches less water but at least there is some mud now! There have been up to three Common Sandpiper and one particular bird was able to relax on the feeding front, courtesy of this lobworm (calorific equivalent to 3,500 midges?? - I'm making this up though!)

First catch your tasty worm.....








A quick wash.....






Then down the hatch.....







And off to find another one.....






An evening Kingfisher fly through (bit scarce of late) and a mixed 40+ mixed flock of Hirundines containing at least 2 House Martins completed a relaxing day.

Not a day to produce much in the way of images - but enjoyable nontheless.....
