Here is a photo of an adult with thanks to the photograher who I havent been able to trace- so copy and paste- as I havent permission to show it!
I have been out and about seeing rare and common birds. I have written these up on The Bigg Bird Forum under Corinna's pages 2007 in the Birding Outings section.
I have also decided on my birding holidays abroad for next year.
In early May I'm off to Poland with Ken Shaw (Oliva Rama Tours)and we might get to Belarus for a day- talons crossed.(10 days)- hopefully some lifers there.
In June I'm going to the Picos de Europa (8 days)with a birding friend Bob and Jules Sykes (oliva Rama Tours)1 possible lifer but its the scenery, butterflies, orchids and seeing birds I've seen before but with no pressure(for me!!)I love Espana.
Later in the year - November will find me in South Africa combining a safari with first class birding!(17 days)
An advert now for a top class birder, guide and all round top man Jules Sykes.
He also has a sound sense of humour (for a Yorkshire lad!).
Ken Shaw is a top birder and has a wealth of birding tales of rarities found. He also has a good sense of humour.
oh today saw another Red Admiral...must be the weather!Garden tick for October
and a Hawker in Osterley Park.
