RNG

Inspired by some epic photographs on Birdguides we finally took the trip down a bit south of Derby to catch this long staying Red-necked Grebe that's more or less reached full summer plumage. Real glamour bird this one, a rare specimen of Russian chic and proper little show-off drifting around 20 yards in front of the car park (this beats the pale distant RNGs I usually freeze my bits of for in the mid-winter at Rutland Water).
Also picked up my first Wheatear of '09, hopefully to be met with again in July if all plans for a week on the Isle of Mull come together.


What's missing from this entry? Oh yes, the dodgy digi-video-scope effort...
