Worth the wait?

Must apologies for the lack of blogging this week. Wales didn’t really produce the goods except for this gorgeously gorgeous bird caught in my uncles garden along with 25 other tits and things.

Hope the picture was worth waiting for!
Springs starting spring at Radipole, this mornings wander produced at least 7 Chiffchaff, 4 of which were singing away. Plenty of other stuff starting to sing but little sign of other species starting to move. Just a single ‘alba’ Wagtail was the only bird noted overhead.  Both the Glossy Ibis were at the hide briefly before one few of towards Radipole village and went down in the field just north of the bypass. Bitterns are still at Radipole and Lodmoor plus the original first winter Iceland Gull has started becoming a regular again near the visitor centre. Really hoping for my first Sand Martin of the year having missed three at Radipole so far. Surely it will be any day!
This picture was taken morning at Radipole which seems to still have a decent amount of Bearded tits. Fingers crossed for a good breeding season.
