Eastville Park

Late afternoon walk around the park. Nothing much of note other than a Grey Wagtail and a Chiffchaff. No ducklings on the lake – were they hiding on the island or had they met their fate?

Eastville Park

Too much chatting and not enough photography – but very enjoyable. First ducklings in the park. Lots of Lesser Black-Backed Gulls waiting in anticipation of an easy meal. Sometimes forget how beautiful Mallards are. Blue Tit and a Great Tit on the way home. Goldfinches too.

Eastville Park

Walks and bird watching opportunities have been very limited in recent weeks. Also struggling to get used to a new camera and lens but enjoying the challenge.

Grey Wagtails are looking quite bright now.

Took the easy option of photographing a Heron to get used to camera i.e. sitting on park bench and studying the menu options.

Long-tailed Tits, and Chiffchaffs nest building. No Kingfisher at all today!

Eastville Park

First walk for a fortnight due to Wendy’s broken leg.

Not really concentrating but lots of sightings of Kingfisher and a good view of this Willow Warbler (or is it a Chiffchaff?) on the island in the lake; however, only a very poor photo .
