I thought I'd sorted out all the orphans on the computer, but it seems every time I look in a picture folder, I find a few more lost souls. And I've still got a lot of pictures to sort through, and decide whether to keep and process.
Here's one that made it, from a visit to Loggerheads Country Park, near Mold, in north Wales, back in April.
It was disturbing to read recently, of an egg thief, that stole about 50 eggs from 65 nesting pairs of Little Terns, at a nesting site in the north east of England; Crimdon.
A lovely little bird, that is having a big enough struggle without bastard egg thieves.
There are usually signs put up on beaches that have nesting birds, to advise the public to keep clear for a few months. The area is usually roped off, so that you know where not to go.
This is one on the beach at the RSPB reserve at Titchwell, on the Norfolk coast.
Unfortunately it didn't make any difference to this bloody idiot, who ignored it, and strolled through the roped off area, with his spotting scope over his shoulder.
These sort of people shouldn't be sharing the same air that I breath.
I've spent a lot of today messing around with a much neglected website I have.
The holdingmoments dot com version.
I've decided to concentrate on mostly Butterflies, Moths, Dragons, Damsels, Flora and Landscape on there.
Today the moth section got a makeover, but I can't figure out how to get the pictures in the order I want. Never mind.
Here's just a couple from the selection I uploaded today.
And the delightfully named Mother Shipton
To address the balance, a couple of Butterflies.
Duke of Burgundy
These Bluebells have finished round here now, and in this picture, they are certainly past their best; but the light through the trees was too good to pass.
I'll end with a couple of birds that I took yesterday.
I rather liked the cheekiness of this one.
A Kestrel, that has taken up residence in an owl's box.
And a couple of a very obliging Sedge Warbler.
Getting breakfast for the young ones.
and telling the world that he's here.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
