I can't see the original sticky so will start a new thread.  Saw nearly 30,000 knot on Breydon Water yesterday.  Great weekend at Minsmere, Otter, Kingfishers, Bitterns, lots of Marsh Harriers

The ability to post the photos are great improvementlaughing, but the problem of double & treble postings is just as annoying as the blank pages were!yell

Lots of birds around at the moment, but the other day there was a wren down at birds breakfast time. Flitted around too fast to get a photo, and carefully avoided areas where bigger birds were feeding

We put  Viola's or small Pansy's in a planter close to the kitchen windows, the Wrens seem to love eating the flowers so fairly good opportunity for taking pic's.

I find this very hard to believe, but a photo would change my mind, even a diminished quality one is more than acceptable. smile

We walked around the Great Orme today (Llandudno) and saw a male stonechat.  It's the first time I've ever seen one and must confess that I had to look up what it was!

Also saw several seals in the sea, there one minute and gone the next.

Excellent photo, as always from Oneputt. Will have to plant a tub up with violas. We sometimes see a wren in the ivy on the drystone wall at the bottom of our small garden, but never any closer.

I wish I had had a recorder in my hand today as I looked out of the bedroom window. There was a GS Woodpecker on the fatballs at the bottom of the garden, a party of 5 Long Tailed Tits on a peanut holder, a Nuthatch on another peanut holder, a Robin in our protective cage munching away on the bits from a hanging fatball that a Great Tit was hacking away at, a Sparrow was sitting on a cotaneaster branch pecking at a fatball which had a Blue Tit hanging from the underneath of it, a Blackbird was eating an apple, a Song Thrush was turning leaves over at the bottom of the garden scaring a Wren whilst a Raven "cronked" overhead.

It was like one of those adverts where you see smiling customers walking into a shop whilst happy customers are walking out carrying their purchases. An advert in this case made by the RSPB. It was great until someone opened the back door and everything scattered. Still it was a lovely 5 minutes.

All this with Red Kites all around and Ospreys in the summer. It must be time to move to Clwyd. Can't wait to return to Red Kite site in the summer.
