Savi's Warbler at Minsmere

I visited Minsmere today stopping at Alton Waters where the Red-rumped Swallow had disappeared before I arrived but I bagged a single Arctic Tern for a consolation prize. At Minsmere I tried first for the Savi's but after an hour gave in and walked the reserve finding a single LRP before dipping the Garganey in North Hide. I stopped to enjoy the Swallows at the sluice playing with different backgrounds for a while.

Back at Island Mere I settled down to try for the Savi's again and counted at least five Hobby.
Eventually the Savi's started to buzz and showed briefly as it flew from bush to bush along the far bank directly in front of the hide.

Year list now 203

3 different backgrounds by walking around the post.

Little cracker!
Swallow at Minsmere


  1. Fabulous shots, they never stay still long enough for me to get good shots. Have a good weekend Diane

  2. Great shot of swallow. They like perching on electric wire, best time to have a good shot is morning hours. Don't forget that may is the month of World Migratory Bird Day celebration

  3. Awesome bird pictures. I really like these so much
