Its been a while since I updated my blog, ive been away in Menorca for a week and catching up on chores for another so it was nice to get out on Sunday for a few hours. Whilst in Menorca near Cala Galdana I walked through a gorge and was delighted to add to my life list Egyptian Vulture and Booted Eagle, the Vultures breed here and were magnificent, if only I had my camera. I saw lots of Spotted Flycatcher Sardinian Warbler and even heard a Nightingale, truly a place for me to visit again along with the uncommercialised beaches and turquoise sea, wonderful. On my return I had a few days working at Arundal a mile from the Pallid Harrier, naturally I had a look for this super bird but was not lucky however did see Red Kite, Buzzard, Kestrel and Raven Along with a calling Tawny Owl. Again a cracking location set in delightful Sussex countryside . With the wife working Sunday I had a a bit more time so set off for Grove to try for a few Bearded Tit shots, this time of the year there can be at least a 100 or more with the numbers I would imagine boosted from other areas. The light was fantastic when I arrived and I soon located the birds they were very vocal. I meet a few of the locals and just as we started the camera action we received a call telling us of an Osprey at Reculver ( or was it Seasalter ). We decided to pay a visit as it seemed to be staying put in the oyster beds. On arrival we could see it from a long way off, it was huge and sat for some time before rising and heading south, wow what a sight well worth the trip. With the sun now baking down on us I decided to head home. Monday evening after work with the forecast saying that the weather was to break I paid Oare marshes a visit. High tide is needed for the best views of the waders as they come in from the coast to roost and with the sun behind me a few shots were managed. I saw Little Stint, Curlew Sandpiper , Golden Plover, Greenshank, Ringed Plover, Ruff, Little Egret, Green Plover, Black Tailed Godwit to name but a few and as the sun went down a lone Spoonbill glidded in from the west. So there you are a brief note of whats been going on and a few pictures as follows 1 Bearded Tit..2 Osprey. 3 Osprey. 4 Golden Plover. 5 Black Tailed Godwit..6 Black tailed Godwit. 7 .Little Egret.....Finally a note to all you bloggers for some reason I cannot leave comments on your reports, I am trying to sort out the problem.
