An early start this morning to get to Southsea just before sunrise.  Was hoping for the pair of Snow Buntings that have hanging around by the sea wall.  Luckily both were still there.  Really nice light first thing - I'm quite pleased with some of the shallow depth of field shots along the sea wall.

On the way back from Southsea, stopped off at Farlington Marshes to see if any Short Eared Owls were about.  Two were there doing occasional short flights.  Managed much better shots than last weekend.

Finally, I don't normally do waders, but here's a rather nice Purple Sandpiper from Southsea.

Had a horrible cold today, so didn't want to do much walking in the freezing winds.  Instead had a short drive around Salisbury Plain.  Spotted a Hen Harrier, but too late for any head-on photos - just managed this as he drifted away from me.

Got to Farlington Marshes for sunrise hoping to see the Short Eared Owls and some Bearded Tits.  Half successful.  Three Short Eared Owls hunting for a couple hours. 

A Shorelark turned up on the beach at Hayling Island a couple of days ago.  Popped down this morning and luckily it was still about.  Very photogenic little bird, feeding on the shingle very close to the path.

Early visit to Arne this morning.  Not a lot to photograph, but loads of Dartford Warblers shooting about and staying low.  So here's one of them, plus a shot of Corfe Castle.
