On Sunday and Wednesday we went to the same isolated Holderness location. The Cuckoos and Turtle Doves failed to show, but we did hear a Cuckoo this morning. A Kingfisher was seen at lunch time, but was too far away to be photographed. There are now a pair of Great Crested Grebes on both lakes, so they seem to be doing well. On Sunday I popped over to another local site on an non-wildlife errand, when I was asked if I'd be interested in photographing Tawny Owl chicks before they were ringed. It would have been rude to say no!
