21st May - Wry Luck

Another quiet morning with apparently no migrants, I had resigned myself to photographing juvenile Starlings that were noisily crashing about everywhere until a bird flicked up from low on the Ash Lagoon bank and turned out to be a late Spring Wryneck. It didn't stay on show long, flying up into the taller trees at the back of the scrub where I fired off a few bursts on the camera before getting the news out. I looked up from the phone and the bird had disappeared, despite a 20 minute sit it never showed again.
A singing Garden Warbler near the Woodhorn hedge was also new on the patch for the year.

There's worse birds to write your 1000th blog post about I guess....
