I can remember travelling to Mid Wales when I first saw a Common Buzzard and was very excited. Now they are very common throughout the UK. I still always enjoy seeing them though!

This is a new bird for me and that always makes me happy. This one was at Slimbridge WWT today and was very obliging. It would dive back into cover with any disturbance, but was often out in the open again within a few minutes. A great bird to spend time with.

One of these turned up in out local park in Cheltenham UK a few years ago. It caused quite a stir with many birders turning up to try and get images. It tended to stay well hidden under the dark over hanging trees. I was so pleased to see these as I walked along the canal to the main park in S'Albufera.

To me these birds look like such an ancient species. I was really happy to be able to get reasonably close to them at S'Albufera Majorca.

September 2016 After breeding in Iceland Black Tailed Godwits deserve time for a brush up at Slimbridge WWT UK
These birds breed in Ice Land and migrate in the late summer and autumn to join us in the UK. It's always great when they get close to the hide especially when they take the time to have a splash and clean up.
