Where do I start!!....4 Peregrines (2 pairs) fighting over a kill in front of the Eric Morcambe hide at Leighton Moss, feathers flying everywhere. 12 Little Egret, 1 adult and 1 juvenile Spoonbill, 4 Greenshank, 3 Common Sandpiper, 1 Marsh Harrier flying over, 1 Kestrel hovering and diving, 2 Snipe, 1 Curlew, 6 Bar Tailed Godwits and 3 Red Deer.

Fantastic day, I'm buzzing

My birds of the day are the skein of honking geese that flew over before 7am this morning....a sure sign of the change in season!

Nice birds everyone!

My bird of the day, or it might well be my bird of the year...a Sabine's Gull this evening at the Flashes, Upton Warren, Worcestershire. A record shot added, courtesy of my daughter. A Whimbrel was an added bonus!

Thanks for your kind replies John, Ruth and Bassist! It was a super evenings viewing, Ruth! Just a pity the light was fading fast!
