Week 21

21st May. We went to Wicken fen, saw hobbies, cuckoo and heard aqbout all of the warblers

Nothing further until we went to Yorkshire to stay with friends near Hull, Harry has around 50 nest boxes with tree sparrows in them the nearest being about ten feet from his back door, he also had cameras set up in various nest bowes and obtained some superb images of the blue tits in one box. We walked around his property and came up with a figure of 38 species, most of which were nesting there except for the cuckoo that was calling continuously up to when we left on the Tuesday.

27th May We drove on up to Seahouses to visit the Farne islands and went across  in the afternoon, it was overcast and cool but we enjoyed it.
