Prestwick Carr

A couple of nights ago I had a walk up the bridleway at Prestwick Carr to see if there were any Snipe drumming. There were at the second gate although I only caught sight of one. There was another on the edge of one of the remaining horse field wet areas and three over the crossroads.
The horse fields still hold Greylag, Oystercatchers,Canada geese, Curlew and Lapwing.

The hawthorn bushes provide good perches for warblers

This lower image gives an idea of the number of flies about

and this Chaffinch was quite unconcerned

Nice pics of the warblers, I was worried that your lens might need cleaning before I read that the air was full of flies!
