Blimey It's Hot

Every day has been warm and very humid with the odd thunder storm in the evenings.  Today was no different with the day time temperature reaching 35 degrees.  I took a trip out late afternoon and found plenty of Bee-eater and Roller activity in the usual areas.

Male Black Redstart

I took a look at Homps sewerage ponds where there were 3 Black-winged Stilts, a Wood and a Common Sandpiper.  I headed up above Minerve but found nothing of note but did see a lovely male Montagu's Harrier and a Short-toed Eagle on the way back.  There was also a superb male Black Redstart in the garden on my return and a family group of Subalpine Warblers.
