Birthday Celebrations

Birthday Celebrations this evening came in the form of a Common Scoter at Llandegfedd Reservoir.By the way it felt more like mid winter than mid summer.

That's them all.


A Few More.


A family break to Menorca with a few mornings birding thrown in.The thing that surprised me was you didn't have to look far for anything as there were birds everywhere.I ventured out a few afternoons but it was way to hot and the heat haze was down to a few yards.
