Miserable, drizzly morning so I thought I'd post more photos. Quite a mixture!
Budge Fields (Snipe above, Ruff below)
Great selection of waders even though viewing is difficult. I wonder if the relocation is due to the returning Avocets at Cresswell?
(Erodium cicutarium ssp dunense)
Using BSBI maps it doesn't appear to be very commom.
These two I haven't yet cracked the ID.
Common Lizard/Viviparous Lizard
and its Poo
The encounter with the Lizard was one of those lucky moments. Setting up the tripod to watch the antics of the Avocets, I noticed it basking on the fence. It didn't move for quite some time. I then saw it wriggling and was distracted by the alarm calls of the birds. When I looked back it had gone but it left a little reminder.
This morning in the drizzle I saw this from Snab. A distant shot (not waning to get closer and risk spoiling its breakfast). The Turnstone was keen to have a share of the Octopus as well.
The grey drizzly start meant photos were tricky unless the birds sat still, like this Meadow Pipit.
When it moved 1/25th second shutter speed was not fast enough. Oh well I'll just have to sell it to some fancy art studio.
That's better, thank you.
Couldn't resist a celeb shot of Brian (Magic Roundabout) ... Google it if you're young!
