As you asked so nicely...one of my favourite shots, a Beardie at Radipole from Feb
In reply to Germain:
Thanks Cin, they are in the Stour at Blandford, if you know the area?
And thanks for spider ID
Definitely jealous of your Otter sightings PB never seen one, even those at Leighton Moss have let me down..and wont say anything about that Beardie shot.

In reply to Alan:
Until three weeks ago I hadn't seen the otters either, I thought they were a myth! I had a glimpse of one, then last week got a couple of decent shots, and the pair today...perseverance is the key!! And you'll make blush with heart-eyes emoji's lol
And i'm equally jealous of your sparrowhawks!
In reply to PimperneBloke:
Some excellent stuff and I grudgingly admit that you probably deserve to get two otters for getting up that early!!
PimperneBloke said:04:30....yes Hazel, there are 2 of them in a day!!
I'm not convinced. I think it is just a figment of imagination of those suffering from severe sleep deprivation.

You'll get used to the arguments discussions of Willow Warbler vs Chiffchaff on here, but that might be a telling description. Not many warblers are singing at the moment, but if it was singing beautifully, then it was almost certainly a Willow Warbler. Chiffchaffs have a repetitive call that while it might be distinctive or even evocative, I think few would actually describe it as singing beautifully Listen to a recording of the Chiffchaffs call/song and you'll easily recognise if that was your bird, anyway.
Lot to learn
