Yellow brain on Gorse
Two phases of Blackening Waxcap
Caterpillar sp Hadston links...not a sharp shot
Good start to the day with a lovely Green woodpecker feeding on the grass at the top of Abbey meadows on a tri-angle of grass at the T junction. It flew and landed at the base of a tree. I enjoyed the views for a few minutes rather than run around trying to get a pic of it. It was looking bright and smart in the morning sunshine.
I then went to Widdrington tip where the rains have flooded almost the whole of the wooded and clearing areas and walking through I flushed 33 Common snipe and 4 jack snipe. I tried hard to photo a Jack but they kept flying only a few yards and I was almost standing on them before they flushed a short distance again but I couldn't pin point exactly where they were landing. Other birds of note here were 40+ Skylark, 14 Reed buntings, Stonechat, 2 Buzzards and a small Linnet flock.
I finished the day at Hadston and Hauxley links. Not a lot of birds today but some fine fungi in the dunes and I have posted a few.
