Northern Lapwings in decline.

Posted Saturday 20th April 2013 at 11:20 by Rick and Elis
On the first day of Wader Quest we had expected that the first bird we would see would be Northern Lapwing. After all we were about to drive for a couple of hours through the early winter British countryside passing through the fens on the way to Norfolk.
I was amazed and disappointed that we didn't see one, not least because it was a picture of a lapwing that got me into birding in the first place (Horrible plug now), for full story see Chapter 1 Confessions of a Bird Guide my new book.)...

Spring at last

Posted Sunday 14th April 2013 at 23:35 by Green Sandpiper
The signs of spring are clear- the rain is warmer than before....

Sorry, well- worn SCottish joke about the weather.

But, the sgns of spring are all around- both in what we're seeing and what we're no longer seeing. Got my first sand martins and swallows today, at my favourite RSPB reserve. Also got a common sandpiper, a good bird, but the swallow and sand martin are more clearly a sign of the changing season. Got wonderful views of a singing chiffchaff as well,...

Stanley Park

Posted Sunday 14th April 2013 at 22:47 by snakybat

Went for a walk around Stanley Park yesterday and was delighted to see a pair of Grey Wagtails bobbing around. Was lovely to see the Herons also and even got a sneaky peak at a Goldcrest in a tree hanging over the lake. There was the usual abundance of Great and Blue Tits at the tree stump feeding spot but although I saw a Nuthatch high in the trees, he didn't bother coming to feed. Oh well, a good day.
