1st Nest of 2013 - 1st Twitch of 2013

Collared Dove on nest at Colliery Row.
 - must be all the Love songs they hear on the petrol garage forecourt, that gets them in the mood year-round.....

Yesterday we caught up with Waxwings on the scenic route back from school
& another twitch today, 14mile trip taking in Redshank and a fine Long tailed Duck

These images obtained by iPhone hand held to telescope balanced on top of metal 5 bar gate.

The warm midday sun pulled the Buzzards up with a kettle of 8 up over the estate.
Im 99% sure i had LSW calling, but will have to go back & get closer
