Today, 6 years of this blog, and if I make it over the next three days, 5 years since my heart attack.
Here's a few old ones from the archives to celebrate.
First is a sunrise from my favourite place
The rest is a small selection of birds.
Great Reed Warbler
A bit special this one. I don't do twitching, but this was quite a rarity that I found myself, at a local lake, back in 2008. Only the second record for Bucks since 1946.
Black Swan and Mute Swan
A bit unusual, in that the Black Swan appeared to be a surrogate parent. Even more unusual was the male Mute Swan didn't seem to mind. A menage-et-trois of the avian world.
Great Crested Grebes
Another rarity I found myself, at my local lake, Caldecotte. The place was buzzing with twitchers for a few days after. The bird only stayed one day.
(I think Adrian might remember this moment)
Hope you enjoyed them
Enjoy your week.
