Peaks and troughs of an iffy! August in Shropshire.

August 24, 2016  •  1 Comment

 Every year Birdwatchers and others reach the doldrums of August where as birds quietly moult into their pre-migration plumage, bit like me really!!

There are a lot of juvenile birds moving around the county at the moment Redstarts, Flycatchers and a whole gamut of others, Also many people switch to chasing Butterflies, Moths and all manner of subjects I normally go for Butterflies and Dragonflies, which have proven to be not so easy this year to catch up with .

But there are a lot of things starting to happen as more young birds start moving back to their winter quarters. So what on earth have I been upto well here you go . A set of juvenile birds.

Beautiful set of images. I can only hope to achieve some that may be half decent. Have been reading your blogs for some time now and always very impressed. Look forward to more.
