In just three weeks we (Benno, Tom, Sye, Phil and I) head back to Loch Awe for our 3rd Scottish sojourn. I have still got loads of bits to get sorted out, but am now really getting in the groove - I have a plan for this trip; a single bite is all it will take! The final Canterbury & Thanet PAC regional meeting takes place tonight, before we take our summer break, I still don't know if I'll be able to make it - such is the workload at Fujifilm SIS at present.
So with nothing better to do I am going to post a series of images, from previous Springs and other places, where the sun shone brightly and the birds sang loudly; as Niel Diamond once sang - what a "Beautiful Noise".
|Garden Warbler at Stodmarsh NNR - might not be much to look at but what a voice. |
The structure of its magnificent song is, to my ears, like running water.
|Moustached Warbler - June 2007 Mallorca|
|Nightingale - Pefkohorri, NE Greece.|
Why are they so shy in the woodland habitats of the UK?
In Greece they are garden birds; completely at home on the power cables where they
can belt out their incredibly powerful song - wonderful noise!
|Ruppell's Warbler - Icmeler, Turkey (May 2010)|
|Sardinian Warbler - Pefkohorri, NE Greece (May 2009)|
|Serin - Mallorca June 2007|
So much excitement - its jingle, jangle mix of notes delivered at express pace.
A sunshine sound that conjours memories of The Mediterranean.
