Black-winged Stilts, Blacktoft Sands RSPB

Fabulous to have two black-winged stilts locally, but they were so distant and in the hour that we were there, they didn't move from that far reedbed edge. 
They seemed to be totally at home, feeding, sleeping, preening and mating. 

The lone female montagues harrier still patrols the reedbed, looking and hoping for a mate this year.


These swallows were busy collecting mud from a puddle at the side of the road on our home journey but a local dog walker soon put paid to our birding. 
But what a fantastic morning. Now home to pack for Georgia and Armenia, we fly out tomorrow for 2 weeks birding. It looks wonderful, looking forward to it.
