Rustic Bunting at Horseshoe Point

 On May 24th 1994 I twitched a male Rustic Bunting at North Cotes pools as my first Lincs bird- found the previous day by the late and much missed Dave Bradbeer - 38 years later and my second Lincs Rustic also a male was in a ditch not 2kms from the site of my first - elusive and hard to see in its chosen roadside ditch images of any sort were a bonus as it looked for a long time that we would not find it in the windy and eventually wet conditions - some rubbish record shots

Sandpit Mining Bees Andrena barbilabris

 An improvement on my images from last year on the Lincolnshire coast with the new Canon RF 100-400 lens - the males, the smaller individuals with fluffy sides are only 6.5-8.5mm long 


 A very odd day - these three birds flying around together appear to be all males? 


 Taken 25 minutes after sunset on a very dull night witht he Canon R6 and 400DO lens hand held at 10800ISO
