....and other locations.
Black-crowned Night Heron. Kah Wai
But first a good compositional photograph of the Night Heron at Kinta Nature Park in Malaysia with many thanks to Kah Wai.
Common Sandpiper. David Cookson
I had some choices now and eventually decided to walk down the River Wenning from Hornby to find at least 35 Whimbrel at the confluence, also the inevitable - uncounted - but no more than 50 Sand Martins with 3 Common Sandpiper, a Goosander, 2 Redshank, a Song Thrush, and singing Skylark. I was running out of time now but still had choices, this time I called in on Rigg Lane to hear the very bird I'd hoped for the Cuckoo on Birk Bank, I noted 'some' Green Hairstreak and heard a Chiffchaff. Thanks for the excellent CS pic DC.
Some National interest....The Barolo Little Shearwater is apparently still on Lundy, and three more Vagrant Emperor Dragonflies have been seen in Dorset, Pembrokeshire, and off the coast on Skomer Island.
