Spring catch-up

A small selection of recent birds from Holme. With much work being done recently to improve access arrangements the birds haven't been forgotten - they just haven't posed for the camera! Recent personal highlights have included 2 spring Arctic Skuas and Iceland Gull past the Dunes, 2 Cranes circling almost over the Obs and Ring Ouzels and the Grasshopper Warbler pictured below reeling and posing in the dunes. Words and Pictures Ray Roche.

10th April Black Tailed Godwit - 1 of a flock of over 50 that wheeled over Redwell Marsh in afternoon sunlight.
