Tuesday 8th September 2020

The last week has been good and bad. The good mainly in my garden, the bad elsewhere.

Grafham Water on the 2nd September produced a Yellow-legged Gull, a bird that I wanted to get improved photographs.

A Great black-backed Gull got in on the act too, firstly by flying in

and then conveniently landing.

Apart from that. very quiet.

The next day, I took it easy in my garden

Friday 4th and a friend and I went to Norfolk, hoping to find the Wryneck at RSPB Titchwell - disappointment, Titchwell generally was very quiet and the only birds worth exercising the trigger finger for during the whole day were some juvenile Ringed Plovers at Thornham.

Yesterday, 7th, I went reasonably early to Dernford Reservoir, quite local to me. A juvenile Spotted Redshank had been there for a couple of days, but, true to form, it had gone by the time I got there. The only bird of any note was an obliging Dunlin.

Later in the day, I had another session with my garden feeders, just to see what was about.

The usual Robin, now in it's fresh winter plumage.

and a flock of Long-tailed Tits again.

Certainly the best photo I have of that species.
