By the time I got back it had reverted to type and was hiding. This is my best two...oh dear...
Such a shame as it had been performing like a star earlier...
Still I'm not complaining about the crap pics, Barred on the patch is still a tremendous bird and the highlight of a great week.
Also seen today, 9 Swallows S, 2 Whinchats, 5 Wheatear on the path near the teepee, 49 Lapwing and 23 Curlew in the back field.
On a sour note, at the exact spot where I saw the Grey Squirrel the other day, a Red was a road kill this afternoon...
