UK Bird Pics Spring/Summer 2017

Wood Warbler Wood Warbler, Elan Valley, Wales

1 May 2017

Poor conditions for our first visit to the woods above Elan Village - rain from time to time and leaden skies. Getting Wood Warbler pics isn't easy at the best of times, so this isn't too bad in the circumstances.

This site also had Pied Flycatcher, Redstart, Tree Pipit (at the top of the zig-zag path), Dippers on the river and distant Cuckoo - practically the full set!

This delightful bird was showing really well early morning and performing in front of the hide!

A frequent sight from the Otter Hide depending on the time of day. This was its closest approach - more often it was further away.
