Timewarp - back to New England and the Farnes!

The back problem seems to be well on the way to recovery? I haven't really had a work out carrying the gear however, grounded by a particularly nasty throat infection which, touch wood, after two weeks of coughing and spluttering is also improving.

Been doing more 'catch up' with a few more garden birds in New England, like this Red-bellied Woodpecker, which you can find...... here

Another batch of Farnes images too from June here, Grey Seal, Kittiwake, Fulmar, Razorbill oh and a pair of shag having one!

I love this image :-)

Yeah, I know...... months behind but getting there!

Farne Islands timewarp - Puffins!

Here's the Puffins link as promised. This is from day two of a three day session which took place mid June 2012, more to come then.....

The images feature lots of fish and cute poses,  here's a couple of tempters for you to hit the link?

Another day to sort and the theme will be flight!

Farne Islands timewarp - Tern warfare

Sorry there's been no posts recently folks. Apart from the local scene producing nowt of note, the back problem was replaced by a dire throat infection!

Never mind, I spent most of yesterday sorting images from my visit to the Farnes in June, still nowhere near completing this! Here's a couple of 'tasters' - follow this quick link  to Arctic Warfare on 18th June.....

Puffins to follow......

Fantasy birding - back to New England

The bird drought continues locally and water levels are scuppering any chance of a wader dropping in at VP  My garden is looking lovely though and lots of plants have been sorted :-) And .....

How about this then - male Rose-breasted Grosbeak!

Now that I have your attention :-)  Don't worry, I've been catching up with some image sorting - May 17th to be precise in a garden in New England. Looking at all the vagrants turning up in Ireland, (Belted Kingfisher, Eastern Kingbird etc) who's to say we won't be in with a chance of one of these??)

If you want to see more of the Grosbeak plus a few more of those rather attractive garden birds, click on the link below.....

Quick link....

Assuming the drought continues, more of the same to follow. Which reminds me I have about 20Gb of Farnes / Puffins to sort as well !!
