Visits have been fleeting and infrequent this year as I save up valuable brownie points to get the Spring passage birds when Spring really kicks off. Though admittedly, now you can fall out of your car and watch birds at GLE- the task been made much harder.
A male Wheatear and a presumed newly arrived Chiffchaff were nice to see.
But my pictorial offering has come in the form of a long range shot of a Dunlin- none have been reported at Broom since last week, so I think this one is Bona Fide!
Caught in good light and clearly showing a classic winter plumage individual. I just couldn't face another field sketch!
Jim- I am available for photographic tutorials- just give me a call and I'll arrange an exclusive workshop..........................;)
