Shrikes there are aplenty. Huge numbers of Red-backed. A few adults
A long staying Lesser Grey Shrike - this bird has been on the same wire for nearly two weeks. I tried getting photos from the car but every time I stopped it flew off. Yesterday I simply walked up underneath it and it didn't seem to care.
Redstarts passing through - very pretty birds.
Checked out the puddle at Besor yesterday morning. Impressed by the numbers of Bluethroats - here're some photos of two of the most confiding ones.
Several Grey Herons but, strangely, no Purple Herons.
Many Kingfishers - once again, reasonably confiding.
A very frustrating Little Crake that kept its head behind the vegetation while the rest of it was in the open.
A Little Ringed Plover,
Finally some bad news - found this injured juvenile Little Bittern. It doesn't seem able to use it's legs or wings so possibly it was hit by a car. I'll take it to the vet tomorrow and see what the situation is but I suspect it'll be a one-way trip for it. Such a shame.
