Back again...

Well that was a right old trial... As usual our BT Broadband went off without notice leaving us for 10 days without any connectivity. Its not the waiting for it to be fixed that is the issue, its the lies, false promises and downright neglect of all customer care from BT. What a shower they are... Any way, I'm back.

Last week a few decent birds cropped up locally, with two White winged Black Terns, a showy Red Kite and a Corn Bunting from god knows where. There was an adult Pectoral Sandpiper too but it hid away when I was on site.

In between those, a few butterfly sorties around us was quite good with several Large Heath and up to 9 Small Pearl Bordered Fritillaries being the highlight.

Here are a few shots from our 'dark spell' and I should be back on track after that...

White winged Black Tern at Druridge.

Corn Bunting at Longhoughton Steel. My last was here in 2006 the very first post on this blog.

Red Kite at Druridge, I've seen many more WWBTerns in the county than these...

A nice Large Heath, a scarce butterfly of boggy moorland.
