Paxton Pits - A Nightingale sang....

Well, several actually! Nightingales are normally heard but not seen but Paxton gravel pits make a mockery of this.....

Prior to my North East trip I had a talk booked in High Wycombe the night before (not exactly the best thing to have planned before a long journey!) With Paxton being a mere 30 minute diversion off the M1, I decided to take in some birds en-route.

This site is simply phenomenal for Nightingales, I saw several and heard many more. Of course, 'showing well' does not guarantee getting a decent picture but I'll settle for these three images (for now)....










Now then, a talk, 150 mile trip home then 300 miles tomorrow......
