Catch Up before the rush?

A brief catch up before all hell is let loose with migrants in the coming few days. Start with this super red moon I saw a couple of weeks ago. Some patch work the weekend of the Robin-tailed Rufous (mix up intended to reflect the mix up of the day, but good on the potential finder I think he done it the best way shame the really positive news got out) allowed me to see Firecrest and get stuck in quicksand up a cliff after trying to re-locate a large Thrush which turned out to be Ring Ouzel.

Now up to last weekend, I nipped to Trimley to see the Siberian Stonechat

Not many people done the long trek down to the bird.

On the way home I popped into Lynford saw lots of Crossbill a Hawfinch but no Two-Barred but never mind.

On the Sunday of last weekend, went on my first birding trip with my little girl we went to Titchwell and got to see this Migrant Hawker

We saw "lots of Ducks" quoted by Lauren aged 2.5

Curlew Sandpiper and the Little Stint were a bit much for her to pick out

 She liked the "big nose" on this Curlew

The Black-tailed Godwit was a "very hungry bird"

and here she is enjoying the Greenshank

Spotted Redshank also showed well.

Got a good video of all the Shanks and the Black-tailed Godwit

We had fun on the beach where Two Lapland Bunting and Four Snow Bunting flew over, These Pink-Footed Geese came in off showing that Winter isn't far away.

An this tree shows that Autumn is here.
