Spotted Redshank 2cy summer

never even realised that Spotted Redshanks have a recognisable 2cy summer plumage until today

Ring Ouzel

just appeared in a tree top in front of me - no time to adjust angle or anything - Alkborough Flats this morning 

North American Mink

my best ever pictures by pure chance as it appeared where I was looking for a Cetti's but a sort of bitter sweet success with such an unwanted predator -- no pithing it was just looking to cross a track and making sure the coast was clear first

Richard's Pipit post moult

now looking pristine after it sure-breeding moult -- must be due to depart shortly

Grasshopper Warbler, Common Tern and Barn Swallow

Black Tern

first of the spring hopefully there will be more to come -- never very close and deliberately restricted viewing but a cracking bird all the same --
