A Good Visit.

Angie and myself paid a quick but rewarding visit to the Manoa Valley.
We had Meadow Pipits, Song Thrush, Chiffchaff, Wren, Grey Wagtail and Goldcrests along with Blue Tits and Blackbirds. Also a male Bullfinch(patch tick)showed itself before flying off as the cameras were raised.
A little later and further down the valley Angie spotted the bird of the day.....a feeding, swimming, diving Dipper (patch tick) who was joined by another one and also a Grey Wagtail. Unfortunately we were unable to close the gap between ourselves and the birds so the photographs were not as good as we would have wished. Still..Angies photographs are probable the best so I will let her put them up on her own blog.


  1. Slightly belated Happy New Year to you & Angie.

  2. Thank you Frank. Hope you had a nice Christmas. Have a good birding healthy and peaceful New Year.
