A melodious post

You're gonna have to keep looking back in time here as I've still got several days of blogging outstanding (including some of the Scottish trip!!) Problem is,  I think I've had more late nights / seen more bands than birds in the last 10 days - see if you can work out who the aging rockers are (not me!)

Starting at Cardiff and a 'New Jersey' plate.......


'Raise your hand' - who's bossing the Ricoh here?


Hmm, what about a music blog.....

Back to birds for now though and it was a late start on Saturday for the Melodious Warbler at Tiln, Notts. I knew this was going to be my lucky day when the car parked next to the access gate drove away on arrival!!

With quite a busy crowd on site, it was no surprise to see a list police presence, ensuring fair play. Chief Super was back on the beat, sadly bogged down on traffic duty here.....


Now come on..... No-one ever has bothered previously when asked but surely this is worthy of a suitable CAPTION - you are welcome to add one via comments! I'll think of a suitable prize?

I then walked the shortest 0.75 mile ever, you couldn't fail to know when to turn tight off the track (after tripping over the arrow log!


'Showing well' was surely not an appropriate description of this little skulker - singing well yes!!

Here's the gallery patiently waiting  - Spot the Shropshire Birder (not me again!!) .....


Every man and his dog were there....


OK, finally....... and you've probably already scrolled down to here! After an hour of staring, I ticked the bird (honestly officer) Ian G is my witness and then after what seemed like at eternity but was probably three hours, it was distantly in my viewfinder :-) Oh well. record shots (this is all from one brief burst) are better than nowt!!



I think a branch blew in front of the bird here.....


Doing what it did best and I don't mean showing!!


Plus a dodgy flight finale


I have to be pleased with the outcome, it means I wont have to return and watch conifers swaying in the breeze for hours on end.....
