A right off!

Its not often the full day is a birding right off, but yesterday was that day. Nothing went into the notebook and we sat in the car chatting for ages to see if the showers would pass. A short jaunt down to Lynemouth saw us dip the Glossy Ibis just to add insult to injury.

Well, at least I am off work today. I've been getting some camera practice on garden residents...

And a snatched Fulmar from the coast path this afternoon...

How could you dip the ibis it was 4 yards off the road?

Oh! and Deans right, I'd love a tree sparrow here!

Hi - I'm just a bird watcher, interested in buying the 'right' tele lens.

Hi Anon, oh I just wondered if I knew you. Good luck in your lens shopping, I'm new to this dslr game too...
