It's only a hobby....

Yes it's a genuine contender for worst bird photo of the year, but at the speed they fly you don't have much time to fiddle with camera settings. Our first Hobby of the Spring appeared briefly over the willows before wheeling away and vanishing as suddenly as it appeared.

In spite of the poor forecast, there was plenty of blue sky over the farm this morning, encouraging a Cuckoo and seven species of warbler to belt out their songs - Grasshopper, Reed, Sedge, Whitethroat, Blackcap, Chiffchaff and Willow Warbler.




So did anything irritate the warden today? Well yes actually. See left - this happens surprisingly often and I really don't understand why some visitors can't comply with simple, polite requests. It seems hard to believe but maybe they just don't notice the signs. Click here for my idea for a solution!
