Easter highlights

 A slow walk with camera round south Sawbo today. Willow Warbler, Lesser Whitethroat, Garden Warbler, plenty of Blackcap, a snatch of Whitethroat all adding to the local summer population. Otherwise poor reward for some slow going and patience. And poor photos too.x
Here's a view from the top of the patch looking west. If you look carefully there's a couple of Common Buzzards.
And slightly more NW ...   

One of the many Small Tortoiseshells out today.

Earlier there was an excellent hour or two in the company of Steve and Kevin at a local spot where we caught up with Raven, Red Kite, and a Shelduck belting across a farmer's field, and then a fleeting glimpse of the lates local celebrity - a male Lesser Spooted Woodpecker sticking its head out of a hole in a dead tree by the Stort.
