The beautiful weather has got me out with my binoculars and camera again - that's not to say I haven't always got them with me! But a walk along the river and the Links resulted in a few nice snaps.
The first two are of a migrating bird that arrived a few weeks ago and has filled the air with its lovely cascading song ever since: the willow warbler. This one was photographed on top of a gorse bush at the Links (and it looks like a fly is on the end of its bill!). Behind it Kate spotted a common sandpiper running along the beach - and thankfully it avoided the tin can. Just up the river was a resting blackbird and a posing pied wagtail.
