Some more of BR's superb pic's of the Hobby he encountered at Leighton Moss recently and which will go towards keeping the blog 'ticking over' until I get out again hopefully tomorrow.
I think Brian Rafferty has got to grips by now with how fortunate he was to achieve not only excellent views of this magnificent creature but also excellent images which I would chance my arm and claim are probably unique in that they were taken at Leighton Moss and which he has kindly shared with us all and given me permission to copy on to this blog hopefully that they will be shared with an even bigger audience......thanks a bundle Brian.
Just one or two records for today. Whilst in the area I did a calorie burning exercise and walked along the sea wall from Fluke Hall to Cockers Dyke to be rewarded by two superb adult summer plumage Mediterranean Gull's having seen a Whitethroat on the way, also a Little Egret flew East and dropped on to Pilling Marsh. Earlier I had made a brief visit - never a good idea brief visits and not recommended - to Conder Green and found the two Spotted Redshank on Conder Pool which by now are well past their best regarding their 'black' summer plumage, and eight Common Sandpiper without even trying at all.
