Hampshire

Had a great day in Hants last Sunday with 5 birding team members present!

We visited Hurst Beach first hoping to see the Lapland bunts and we weren’t disappointed. One showed really well in the stuble field there;

There were also good numbers of skylark and reed bunting in the field;

Rock pipits were feeding along the shore line and always make nice photographic subjects;

The highlight for me though was the good sized flock of dunlin that were feeding in the mud and bathing in the river there. I got down in the mud and managed to get a decent distant from them in some lovely light:

We also did some photography at Denny Wood but several merciless attacks from a horse meant nothing great was achieved. I am happy with the great spot one though;

I can’t wait to get out again with the new 500mm!!!
