Catching Up



With the computer breaking down again there is a little catching up to do!!

Last Friday it was a short visit to Tide Mills with Pete. I was an optimist by carrying  the macro lens. Fortunately Pete had his telephoto with him as the only interest was with some Wheatears and Whinchats. There was at least 4 Whinchats but they were camera shy, but one Wheatear was quite approachable and allowed both of us to get a few photos.

I haven't managed to get out much lately due to family issues so yesterday evening I called up Seaford Head again for another go at the superb Small Coppers. Plenty were showing with many still very fresh. Once again a couple performed well for me.

Today it was back to the Levels. Being late in the season there wasn't an awful lot showing but Migrant and Brown Hawkers were still showing in reasonable numbers. The only photo opportunity came with a male Migrant Hawker settling on a bush in front of us. Still an excellent day on an area that needs a bit of checking out next year.
