Male Brambling again in garden and Ness Point
On Tuesday March 20th, a day off work it was great to see a pair of Blue Tits busy collecting nest material and using one of our nest boxes, smart male Brambling in garden again 10.20am but has so far eluded the camera today! It would fly onto the ground and feed on the fallen sunflower seeds. At Ness Point, hoping to find a Bluethroat, no such luck but a small bird which flew across the Birds Eye car park into Tamarisks bushes eventually perched up to reveal a smart male Stonechat. I saw Rob Win and we saw 6 Purple Sandpiper on rocks at Ness Point late afternoon, one posed nicely for the camera in the afternoon sunlight. On some flashes just east of the Net posts, 3 Rock Pipit, 1 Ringed Plover, 2 Dunlin, 2 Redshank & Oystercatcher were seen and the male Brambling still in our Parkhill garden late afternoon.
