May 2008. Local birding.

After all the birding for the rare 'uns' i kept local, visiting sites in Cambs',Herts',Beds'. My local farm and dung heaps were now being checked for yellow wags' and wheatear, both though were low in number. I visited willington, beds, for the stilts but both departed before i arrived.

At the farm a pair of mistle thrushes were showing well on a dew laden lawn freshly cut and rolled, giving me the opportunity to photograph this bird for the first time.
