A few photos from Sunday when we had a quick visit to Saltholm and got views of the Buff Breasted Sandpiper and Jack Snipe (although distant) and also came across a Stonechat and Little Egret.
Buff Beastd Sandpiper
Just noticed on Birdguides that a Waxwing has already arrived there so I thought I would post a few of my favourite photos from last year. These birds arrived in our close on 17.11.09 and stayed for a while. These pictures were taken on 22.11.09. Hopefully they will arrive back soon.
Just posted a few record shots of the Jack Snipe and Buff Breasted Sandpiper we saw at Saltholme on Sunday. Also a couple of the Little Egret in flight.
Just noticed on Birdguides that a Waxwing has already arrived on Shetland so thought as they are one of my favourite winter visitors I would post a couple of photos which we took last year. The first sighting for ourselves being on 17.11.09 in our own close and then again on 19.11.09 when these photos were taken.
