Linnets at Sunrise 27-7-13

This time I was out even earlier, this is getting silly, the idea was to get the Linnets as early as poss and use some of that early morning light.

See what you think.

Been and found a Pipit or two.

You are supposed to sing the title, to a well known musical tune.
Never mind,,, it was funny at the time.

I can see you.

These and some more were all taken at Marshes Hill in the silly heat, don't ask why I was out in it, must be an age thing.

6.30 in the morning----Aagh

Stunning morning finds me lying down in wet Heather and Gorse, waiting for the birds to come to me. A recce the night before showed that they did not like it if I moved towards them, even if I did look like a moving bush, ambush, sit and wait, well lie and wait was the tactic.
It worked and this is the result, pic's of Linnets ( not my wet backside )

The rest are on the Picasa site,  It was worth getting out early and even getting soaked.

Not sure. Now I am sure. A juvenile Sedge Warbler, cheers Steve.

But I think it's a Tree Pipit.
Somebody put me right ?  Thanks.
Thank you Steve, now I know

A warbling I will go.

Day off work today, what a nice day, just happened to find some Sedge Warblers in a quiet spot and this was the result.

End of June

In a way I will be glad to see the back of this month, not the best June I have ever seen, the longest day has bin and gone without me noticing, when I was a kid the sun shone till 10 o'clock at night ( I think, can't really remember that long ago ).
Anyway an early trip to Knype with Trace resulted in a few good shots and some 1/2 decent light.
Roll on the summer !!
