Foulridge Starlings

20th May 2011 Two pairs of Little-Ringed Plovers and the odd Redshank were
the only waders on Foulridge upper reservoir early afternoon.
On the lower res' with water levels still high, around 200 hirundines were feeding.
A Hobby flew over and attempted to catch a Sand Martin, then carried on west.
The bird had some brown flight feathers on the upper wing, indicating second summer

A pair of Starlings have been nesting at Burwains clubhouse and i stood behind a
fence and managed to get some close shots without disturbing the birds.
