11 May 2009 - At home

Have just found time to update the blog - finally. The Bearded One has been sunny his ageing buttocks on Lesbos for a couple of weeks, doubtless seeing masses of fantastic birds! He'll doubtless call me shortly to see what's turned up whilst he's been away. How do I tell him that there's been: Brown-headed Cowbird (3 days), Eastern Bonelli's Warbler, Western Sandpiper (6 dyas), Eastern Subalpine Warbler, Collared Flycatcher (4 days), Crested Lark (5 days), Hudsonian Whimbrel, Little Bittern, Black-winged Pratincole (in Kent), Solitary Sandpiper, Laughing Gull, Franklin's Gull, 2x Black Ducks, White-winged Black Tern, Whiskered Terns, Bee-eaters, Marsh Sandpiper, Iberian Chiffchaff, etc, etc - not to mention all the Cattle Egrets, Purple Herons and Black kites....

Welcome back John!

Hi Ross.
Good to have you back in the Land of Blog. Just been catching up on your blog, it makes good reading.You certainly have been about a bit lately. Pam always says "If you could drive I would never see you" HaHa.She's probably right.
Sorry to hear your being made redundant in July.Hope your not out of work for too long.
Nice photo's especially the Large Red D/Fly and the underwing shot of the Green veined B/Fly.
Have a good weekend
