Linnets by the Sea

A good place to find Linnets during winter is along the South Coast which is where I found these. 
They were busy finding food and moved around in a small flock of about 20 birds.

Better Late Than Never

Another post from my trip South last week.
I have not seen a Small Copper butterfly for several years, so it was good to find some on consecutive days at the same general location.

In the same area I found a Common Blue, a Small Heath and a Speckled Wood.

What a great character the Wheatear is and very photogenic as well.
I had to travel some 200 miles South to shoot these images. 
A delightful bird that will stand and pose for you providing you don't get too close.

Local Birding colleagues will recognise the light coloured stone this one is standing on.

In Search of Anything

Searching out birds at this time gets quite frustrating. You know they are there, but finding them is something else. Perhaps a field of well grown potatos is probably not the best place to look. 
However there was something moving about and peering out at me from a distance.
I don't know how many, but I am sure there was more than one female Pheasant amongst the spuds.
Almost certainly there was a male somewhere, but not sighted.

Somewhat easier to find by sound if not visually, are a flock of Starlings on blackberry bushes.

A few shots of the local Fenland areas taken whilst out searching.
