Tried birdwatching at New Passage but driven back by the rain. Only achieved one photo – a greenfinch (only 1.7 million breeding pairs in UK!)
There was plenty of drama though later in Eastville Park with Black-headed Gull trying to snatch Moorhen chick – the chick survived. The resident Grey Heron watched all the action placidly. Plenty of butterflies and damselflies too.
A week’s holiday in Bergerac in the Dordogne Valley in France gave little opportunity for nature photos, especially as I was restricted to a “tourist” camera and lenses. However; I wasn’t going to waste any opportunities and captured the Black Redstart in the garden, Pied Wagtails on the river and a few butterflies,damselflies and dragonflies.
Also saw Hoopoes, a Golden Oriole and Crag Martins on the Dordogne.
