Lot to learn
Driving home past the local reservoir in the rain this afternoon I was sure that I could see the first Osprey of they year. Once the storm had cleared I went back out to doeble check but found that it had only been a trick of the light :(. However I di see a juvenile Peregrine fly through, as well as a pair of Pied Wagtails and the usual collection of Greylag Geese, Curlews, Common Buzzards and Cormorants.

Although just a common Blue tit, I will still spend hours photographing and watching them.
A Very Vocal Nuthatch, this inquisitive bird can create such a vast range of sounds. I watched this one collecting mud from a puddle and flying off into the forest. Some nest building going on somewhere.
It's amazing how many different birds this old dead tree attracts. I was looking at my photo's I'd just taken of this GS Woodpecker when I looked up and saw a Sparrowhawk sitting on it. I never heard it fly in, so silent. Of course I was not ready and missed the shot. Always another time!
