A montage of two very bad photos of a male Pintail on the sailing club bank of Stewartby Lake. The bird was initially seen from the gullwatch and (just) stayed put long enough to get a couple of photos as it flew back into Rookery. It is the only male Pintail I've photographed on the country park (so far...)

Whimbrel - seen flying over the visitors centre mid afternoon. The only one I have ever photographed on the park...

The Cetti's Warbler appeared briefly in bushes near the Marston Corner of Stewartby Lake. It was there just long enough for me to take three photos, in one of which it was perfectly side-on posed, but unfortunately that was the one photo that was blurred... :-(
Green Hairstreaks are my favourite MVCP butterfly, this one was half way between the boardwalk near the visitors centre and the edge of Stewartby Lake.

This male Bullfinch was at the entrance to bramble meadow near the pillinge lake. The bird was feeding just the other side of a bush from me so I managed to get the photos without spooking it. I was very pleased to finally get some decent photo of these normally very unapproachable birds.
