Beardy juvs

coming to a reedbed near you this autumn -- an amazing breeding season on the Humber has filled the reedbeds with juvenile Bearded Tits; some are moving locally already so expect some autumn irruptions








a few from today

still suffering from this heat distortion, insects, itching etc

juv orange-crown

Marsh Harrier broods very variable from several ones to a four but in general looks like a better year than 2013 -- this one was having a lesson on Common Tern identification










back to the locals Barn Owl family

box is need of renovation -- at least 4 juvs flying maybe more
