It’s always a pleasure to provide images to British Birds – regarded as the ornithological journal of record in Britain, who also publish the annual reports of the Rarities Committee and the Rare Breeding Birds Panel. They are currently offering a trial subscription with a massive, nearly 50% discount so there has never been a better time to subscribe. Certainly the sort of journal where you can learn something new every time it arrives. The images feature in an article by Richard Broughton on "Separation of Willow Tit and Marsh Tit in Britain" an area where there are always new things to discover.
The main focus of my time for several weeks has been a small flock of Bar Tailed Godwits. I have watched them for hours and hours and love taking others to see them and watch them elegantly forage along the shoreline. Superb waders.
