Very popular with the AERG paparazzi...
A lovely Cetti's Warbler
Very popular with Steve - Reed Buntings, guess what? He LOVES 'em!!
I can see why!
Apparently this Goldfinch was a 'bit scabby' - Nobody's perfect!
A gorgeous (for a Chiffchaff) Chiffchaff
One of the eightteen Long-tailed Tits caught today.
We let them go in small groups so the flocks wouldn't be separated too much. I tried to get a photo or two of the birds flying out of bag to freedom with somewhat limited success, it has to be said, camera's way too slow. Here they are anyway:
...Last one leaving the bag.
Just as the ringing was drawing to a close for the day I got a text from Bun, which had me pootling over the border to Lyme Regis to twitch this...
What??!! No not really... Actually it was this..
A gorgeous little Grey Phalarope, whirring about right underneath The Cob wall.
I love 'em
Awful low sun by 3 o' clock when I arrived and I'd forgotten my digiscoping camera, the S3 did it's best though. I tried a spot of video but a bit shaky I'm afraid. Great bird though, glad Bun's got a pager. :-)
