With the festive season upon us, I would imagine I will only be able to manage the odd birding trip out in the next week or so as no doubt, many family visits will be planned etc so I thought I would put together a few of my favorite shots taken this year at Reculver. There are lots that could have been included and these may appear in another post. Its been another good year on the patch although I have neglected it for some time throughout the year but did manage 3 patch ticks, Stone Curlew, Marsh Warbler and Spoonbill. Despite these new patch birds I think the prize has to go to the first winter male Desert Wheatear that appeared near the end of the year. Not only was it a super looking bird but it performed well for the camera. Hopefully next year Reculver will turn up something good I have not seen there before and fingers crossed I may be able to find something good myself and take a few photos. There are quite a few photos so settle down with a cuppa whilst you look!
