June Update

Avocet at Minsmere

Well i am pleased to say computer and camera problems have now finally all been sorted out and instead of doing individual posts on birding trips i have decided to just do a overall summary of my birding adventures in June , which i have to say has been more about dipping then ticking White throated robin and white winged scoter where two major dips and to be honest i will leave it at that , the month also started of with yet another dip in Norfolk with missing the Broad Billed Sandpiper at Breydon water by a day , i decided to head to Minsmere and had some very close views of Avocets with chicks .

                                                                        Avocet chick at Minsmere.

These were delightful to see , there was alot of activity on the scrape and are main target bird here was Roseate Tern   , i put in a bit of time for this bird and just as it was beginning to look like another dip however i connected with this super tern.

And at rest.
