As the lockdown continues due to the covid-19 outbreak. I headed once again to the local countryside to try and capture a few images and see what, if any, spring migrants were in. Newly arrived and swirling arounbd over the reservoir were around 30 sand martins and a long staying long-tailed duck gave distant views. For me though, the male yellowhammers were the shining jewels in the spring sunshine. Here a male soaks up a bit of sun in the hedgerows giving me a beautiful view of his ginger, rusty-coloured rump.
