Will have to give Bempton a couple of visits in the next month, maybe even return to the Farnes...


Found this on Deeping Highbank, Lincs on the 8th May. Remarkably this appears to be the only Whinchat recorded in the Peterborough area this spring. If only I had got out of bed an hour earlier I might even have seen the White-tailed Eagle which apparently flew over an hour previous to me finding this bird.

This emerging Broad-bodied Chaser is the offspring from last years single visit from a female. At least four have emerged so far, with one not surviving the whole process.
