Lodmoor Evening 15-5-14

May 17, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Finally finished another week of nights, I thought I would take a quick walk over at Lodmoor, after my little sleep, the Reed Warblers were everywhere, singing their heads off, I bumped into Dennis on his way back to his car, told me about the Terns down on the Island, great news, they have been absent for nearly 2 years since the big flood.

I walked on down the West path and found a roosting Orange Tip, been after getting a pic of one for ages, there was a Reed Bunting calling on top of a bush, not got close to one of these for a while either.

I knew I would see Adrian, sure enough there he was creeping around the corner, we set off to look for the Terns, they were distant and high in the sky, so walked across the road to the beach, they were fishing quite a way out, so we had to wait for them to land on the pole at the end of the Lodmoor drain, I caught a glimpse of something running around, followed it and couldn't believe a Field Vole was on the beach, Probably on its Hols :-), managed to get some shots, it actually ran under someones feet on the prom, it soon disappeared, at last the Terns came into land, lets hope they have a successful season, happy days off to Cyprus, laters :-) Reed Warbler Orange Tip Reed Bunting Field Vole Common Tern Common Tern
