A few photos from today - out and about at RSPB Pulborough Brooks in the morning, and on Salisbury Plain late afternoon.  Nightingale, Wren, Adders, Stone Curlew, Fox.  First Stone Curlew I've seen - very, very distant though, and only spotted because it moved around a bit.

Went to Fishlake Meadows today, trying to find a Cuckoo.  Heard one and managed a brief record shot.  Also, a Chiffchaff and a Sparrowhawk.  Sparrowhawk is a useful comparison to the Goshawk photo of the weekend.  Note the much stronger barring on the underneath of the wing of the Sparrowhawk.

A walk in the New Forest this morning to try and find Cuckoos.  Heard none, saw none.  But did get a nice view of a Goshawk circling overhead.

And later in the morning, popped down to see the Mandarin ducks at Eyeworth Pond.

Redstarts have returned to the New Forest.  Saw a couple this morning, singing away. 

Also quite a few Firecrests about.

No sign of any Cuckoos yet though.

Spent a few hours at Arne this morning.  Rather quiet first thing, but one Dartford Warbler was very active late morning.  Nice against the yellow gorse.
