June birds

Accepting that things are a little different this year and it's difficult to get out and about and with twitching almost out of the window I thought I'd take a minute to look back at previous June birds and reflect on happier birding times.

2010
Common Rosefinch at Tottenham Marshes, a nice local twitch with a few familiar faces.

2011
Squacco Heron on Hookers pit at Dunge

2012
Marsh Warbler from Serin mound at Rainham
Little Bittern on the river Colne Rickmansworth
Purple Heron at Dunge

2013
Black Kite at Selling in Kent
Pacific Swift at Trimley marshes in Suffolk
Roller at Edgefield
Black-winged Pratincole at Shellness in Kent
Wilson's Phalarope on the Isle of White
Melodious Warbler at Tiln in Notts

2014
Spectacled Warbler at Burnham in Norfolk

2015

2016

2017

2018

2019

Be great to see days like this again soon

Remember those socially social days we used to enjoy
So the month of June delivers for sure and most of the above were life ticks for me as highlighted so it's a really good month to be out and about.

Stay safe guys.
