The bird fair was well worth the trip, with lots of trips to think about for the next couple of years. My wallet is somewhat lighter though.
juv. White-winged Black Tern
On the way home i visited the Farthing Downs near Coulsdon, Surrey, and despite spending a couple of hours in the M25 rush hour traffic, i finally arrived and had great views of a HOOPOE feeding on the path. It showed well and was very obliging.
