CRAG MARTIN

10 & 15/11/2015 - Chesterfield Centre

Two visits to Chesterfield to attempt to photograph this fast moving hirundine. Lovely bird which was the first in the UK for me.




































RED-BREASTED FLYCATCHER

02/10/2015 - Hestingott, Shetland

A great garden near the playground produced this, a couple of YBWs and a Blyth's Reed


























ARCTIC WARBLER

01/10/2015 - Weisdale Voe, Mainland Shetland

A cold and rainy day with only distant views of the bird that had previously been on Yell.











BLUETHROAT

29/10/2015 - Quendale, Shetland

A sunny day and we visited Quendale again to find this Bluethroat hanging around some old farm buildings. I had to step back as I was too close to focus on the bird.























PECHORA PIPIT

29/09/2015 - Loch of Norby, Mainland Shetland

Finally got to grips with the bird after some effort by the large group of birders present and a methodical sweep of the flag bed.














WHITE-WINGED BLACK TERN

07/07/2015 - RSPB Frampton Marsh

A chance encounter as I was working in the Boston area at the time. Nice light but poor shots as I never got close enough.









LITTLE BITTERN

05/07/2015 - RSPB Old Moor

A fleeting glimpse of the Little Bittern at Old Moor at distance, although very interesting as it climbed up through the trees.
