Well, came back today from Gloucester - great time with good company.. thanks Pete.
Decided the 100-400 EF lens was getting neglected so popped in to Warnham on the way home. Generally very very quiet but I was pleased to see a pair of Common Terns back on the pond again. They seem to be there every year and were spending a great deal of time flying and swooping for food. Occasionally they would land on the tern raft or one of the perches... good stuff!!
Spent sometime around the feeder area which was relatively quiet but probably because it was late morning. And help needed please (hopefully confirmation) on a bird ID.. see further down..
Mute swan very well hidden and presumable incubating eggs...
Wasn't sure whether this was a young robin or weary adult. It was being fed by a definite adult so I'm thinking young one.. albeit early?
A Grey Wagtail landed... on the furthermost post!!
A Chiffchaff sang.... managed to get a quick shot but..
And ID help please... think this is a Linnet? If so, first time I've seen one there..
And the energetic Common Terns... I was amazed to get these record shots as they were very active and fast today!!
And finally home... good weekend.. :D
