I was walking along the Western Yar Estuary first thing this morning and came across this Common Sandpiper.
I'm really pleased with this footage (apart from the sound of the telescope creaking as I rested the camera on it and panned around!). I continue to be amazed at just how confiding birds can be here on the island. At one point this individual was less than 5m away from where I was standing!
In Mill Copse I disturbed this Red Squirrel who ran up a tree and shared just how annoyed he was!
Lots of House Martins moving south this morning!
