On Friday evening there was news that an Elegant Tern had been seen at Sandy Point, Hayling Island. I headed for Sandy Point early the next day and waited for about 4 hours with no luck, news was then received that it had been relocated in Pagham Harbour from Church Norton. A quick drive whilst hoping there would be a space in the small carpark, in fact I got the last space. After a wait of about 20 minute’s the Elegant Tern was seen in flight over the tern island in the middle of the harbour. It was seen a few times in flight before it flew across the harbour and out to sea. No pictures of the tern but a few of the crowd and Pagham Harbour.
A good day out in the New Forest. The main target species was Honey Buzzard and one was seen, if rather distantly. Goshawks and a family party of Hawfinch were seen a bit closer.
A few photos from a visit to Lakenheath RSPB a couple of weeks ago.
An early morning visit to Lakenheath RSPB to see the Marsh Warbler. A lovely sunny morning and a nice long walk before the day got too hot!
The annual trip to Scotland started with 3 nights in Aviemore. We then drove to Ullapool where we stayed the night before getting the ferry to Stornaway on the Isle of Lewis. We stayed here for two nights before getting the ferry to Skye from Tarbert on Harris.
What can I say – another good day out spoilt by the football. Terrible first half display!
