Black Bellied Plover at Bombay Hook.

It’s been a couple of weeks since I posted. It was quite slow for a while, but migration  is in full swing now, and I’m actually finding the occasional warbler.

A trip to Bombay Hook with Graeme was a treat a few days ago.

I got to CBEC again, and Terrapin, but  mostly I’ve stuck to Greenbury, Jonas Green and Quiet Waters.
