Rich Steel has sent me his latest gallery of migrants, breeders and weasels - and mighty fine they are too.
Yellow Wags, Wheatears, Whinchats, Reed, Sedge and Willow Warblers, Treecreeper etc etc - what Spring is all about.
Sit back and enjoy in-focus photography...thanks Rich (link to his site on the right).
Rich explains: "Attached some recent snaps. I feel like a need to be in 10 places at once at the moment!! Just about to start the woodland migrants which should be fun.
Weasel at Conwy and I thought birds were hard to photograph..lol"
Oddly enough I watched a cracking Weasel chasing a Short Tailed Vole at Marshside down the track to Nels on Sunday - they both completely ignored me, caught up in life and death.
The vole gave the Weasel the slip by jumping onto the road and running along the bottom of the kerb, while the predator got confused and bounced back into the cover of the bank.
Anyway, I digress, back to Rich's pictures...
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
