Not done a lot lately as I've been busy doing other stuff and what little I've done has been local.
With news of a Wheatear in the last few days at St Brides I took a break from some DIYing and after visiting B+Q in Bridgend with Teresa this afternoon we popped down to Ogmore By Sea to see if I could locate and photograph a new arrival.
Whilst a very patient Teresa relaxed in the car I had a look around for an hour but to no avail,too many "grockles" and dogs about.
I decided to cut my losses and had a look for the regular Purple Sandpipers on the rocks opposite the gate before they depart north again to their breeding grounds.
In a low nice late afternoon light I managed a few reasonable record shots :-
Hopefully I'll catch up with a few new arrivals in the next few weeks.
