Cracking birds, Red rumps, they seem so much more exotic than our own Swallows. Dashing around in the lee of the baffle bank at Druridge with 50+ mixed hirundines, sometimes coming right up to the hide then vanishing for a minute or two before resuming its circuit. As I arrived back at work, ADMc found a second bird with this one, 2 Red rumps together is a red letter day!
What a good year we are having in the county...I think Northumberland is up there with the best. Imagine what would be found if we had as many birders as Norfolk?
|Too wet for the camera, and I had forgotten my notebook so some rough lines were drawn on scrap paper as a reminder then these done back at home...|
