Flying Pintail.

It was good to get out with Paul and Pete yesterday, primarily hoping to see and photograph some more Bearded Tits, however, the weather ended up not being too helpful for this and apart from a pair seen at distance we failed with this species.

All was not lost though as we managed to get some practice in at shooting some Duck and Geese.

There were plenty of Brent Geese about and we had several flypasts with both single and small groups of geese.

However, the stars were without doubt the Pintail ducks that flew over us many times giving us plenty of chances, although once again the light could have been better with generally dull and cloudy backdrops.  It was good though to see these superb duck at pretty close range as they flew over, generally in pairs.


The day before I saw my 2nd butterfly of the year, this time a Red Admiral on Ashdown Forest during a walk with Nigel.
