Ah and Bluebells

A bit short of time so just a quick update, the Little Grebes at the Ivy South hide have had chicks for a few days now, each parent takes one or more to look after. The picture below was specially selected for its "Ah" rating.
Other birds in the last couple of days included the duck Pintail and Wigeon still on Ibsley Water and 3 Goosander which flew in as I was after poaching anglers at dusk. Today two Dunlin and a Wheatear were the highlights. the Wheatear sounded like it was a male Greenland race, but I never actually saw it. The best I could do was a quick pic of one of the Dunlin.
Out in the woods the Bluebells are looking good and a bit of warmth today has brought out more damselflies and butterflies.
Hopefully a bit more tomorrow if I get time.
