As spring Pipits and Wagtails are prevalent on the way to work, I will continue to keep my camera in the car.
Red-throated Pipit's are quite numerous
|Red-throated Pipit (Anthus cervinus)|
And today, I thunbergi Yellow Wagtails was the predominant Wagtail
|Grey-headed Wagtail (Motacilla f. thunbergi)|
And the first of the Spotted Flycatchers
|Spotted Flycatcher (Muscicapa striata)|
|Pallid Swift (Apus pallidus)|
And along the harbour Little Terns were actively foraging.
|Little Tern (Sternula albifrons)|
along with a few Sandwich Terns - this one with a deformed bill
|Sandwich Tern (Sterna sandvicensis)|
Imagine my surprise when another rufous form Common Cuckoo came flying up the coast, almost under the radar of the Little Terns - I was pretty chuffed
|Rufous form Common Cuckoo (Cuculus canorus)|
There are a lot of feral Cat's around the harbour - this one looked like a character from Phantom of the Opera
