Hi folks. I haven't been posting much of late so just a few shots from a wander about at Skateraw / Barns Ness today. I was at the car park waiting for a singing Sedge Warbler to show itself (which it didn't.....not for a photo anyway) when a lovely Pied Wagtail landed on top of the toilet block.
It's always a good place for birds on fence posts, so a few Rooks for you.
Meadow Pipit with a bill-full of juicy goodies for a youngster somewhere.
A nice male Yellowhammer on top of a bush.
It's also a good place to see Skylarks.
It was nice to get a snap of a Whitethroat, a bird I don't really see too often.
Another male Yellowhammer. Not exactly on a fence post, but we'll not quibble over the finer details.
Skylark a bit further along.
And a final Tree Sparrow on the way back.

Lot to learn
Thanks folks. It was nice to get out in a bit of sunshine. The last few weeks have been a bit of a wash out here.
Fabulous photos Paul, and so clear .
