These are some of the images taken from the Royal Navy bird watching weekend at Portland Bill at the end of April. Throughout the weekend we saw an array of bird species totalling 109, not bad going for three days birding..
On one day we saw in excess of 1000 Wheatears land, and the numbers were probably greater, all in all a superb weekend with some great friends.........

Nuthatch in the Woods

Ringed Plover

Siskin Male

Siskin Female

Sarah came up from Cornwall to take me on a surprise weekend to the New Forest, and what a wonderful weekend it was. It's nice to see some different wildlife, with the extensive cover of the new forest species like the siskin, Nuthatch, Firecrest and Marsh tits not usually seen around the Lizard..
The Ringed plover was taken near Port Solent Marina..
The Firecrest is the second/third smallest bird in the UK, such a beautiful little thing, when alarmed it's crown streak flares up, in a fiery red/Orange!!

Blue-headed Wagtail (Motacilla flava)




Today's quick walk around Lizard Village revealed a few surprises!! Tony and I heard a Yellow Wagtail call overhead, then it landed in a field of Red Devon Cows.  On closer inspection through the Bins, it turned out to be a Blue-Headed Wagtail, a first for me.
They are a Sub specie of the Yellow wagtail, a lovely looking bird with a rather secretive nature. Thanks Tony Blunden...
Couldn't help taking a nice little shot of a Dunnock calling with some beautiful diffused gorse behind.
