My first ever Black Redstarts.  I spotted three of them (2 males, 1 female) on Salisbury Cathedral today.  Very high up, so record shots only, but if they hang around I'm sure I will eventually get lucky with some closer views.

No Short Eared Owls or Bearded Tits this morning at Farlington Marshes, but saw this nice friendly Kestrel.

Doesn't really count, as I strongly suspect these two are escapees rather than wild migrants, but a pair of Wood Ducks at Eyeworth Pond in the New Forest this afternoon.

A day off work, and an early morning visit to Arne.  Was hoping for Marsh Harriers in lovely clear blue skies.  No luck.  But the raptor hide, overlooking part of Middlebere channel, had a female (red colouring under beak) fishing on and off for about 3 hours in front of it.  Often quite distant, but sometimes perched near by.  So I got some photos - light was sometimes okay, but never perfect.  I did see Marsh Harriers, but far too distant for decent photos.  Also, a fox - prowling about at 10:00am.

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.
