WOW!! Easterlies and sunshine.

After what seems like an utter age of Westerly winds and rain, the migration seemed to have stalled here in Shropshire as we watched the reports from the east coast. Goodness me what a change, the winds swung to the east and the sun appeared for a good number of day and is, as I type this still nice warm and sunny out in the wild.
So and what did this change in the weather bring to us , well here you go...

Sadly not in Shropshire.
Yes I know not migrants but hey shoot me...

A some what emotive subject, scientific research versus emotional query???
as you can see here we have a Dipper with both Silver add Gold awards for it's endeavours in existing in the British isles. Awards??? more like leg irons perhaps! so got a view or comment lets have it in the comments or mail lets see where it goes..

So a bit shorter than normal? no pontifimacations either..

John Denver said it all??

Some information for the readers of this Blog, assuming there is more than just me LOL! at the end of April it will move to my new Website until the live switch over all blogs are being published there also just click the RSS feed so you don't miss the exciting continuation.

Some After what seemed like an eternity, there is at last some warmth and sunshine to warm your back as you sit and wait or stroll around the local reserve. A little oops nearly fell asleep on the bench moment did occur !!

And to top a lovely day, or bottom it perhaps? was the finding 10 yes that's right 10 Hares sitting feeding in a field in the sun,,, three blooming fields away and no stealthy approach, Damn it.

Any way a bit of what has been got since the last blog for you delectation.

Grey Hare (Lupus Timidous)

Med Gull
Get off.
Little -ringed Plover
Common Snipe
Broke back something!!!

Winter Wren
And at last I got the weed dance. YAY!

Harsh light KF.

So there you go a selection of the last two weeks, nothing out of the ordinary but all worth the effort, it is another up at 5:00am for another go at the Hares, the sun will be directly in my eyes for the first hour or so, but you got to do it aint ya!

So till then , Tara a bit jockey
