Not a redstart to be seen.

I said in my last post that I was after Flycatcher and Redstart this week, well I failed, not a picture of either to show you. Not for the want of trying though I assure you.

So what did I get? The Mute swans were still sitting on their nest.

Until Saturday, at which point they hatched seven chicks.

Tell me they are not beautiful.

This Garden Warbler was quite obliging.

as was this Fallow Deer.

The Bluebells are in full bloom.

A trip to Newport Wetlands RSPB reserve gave me views of a Heron.

But more pleasing were the glimpses of the Bearded Tits.

Can I get Redstart this week? Maybe not as I have to go to Chester for 2 days. We'll see.

Some lovely photos! Aren't the cygnets beautiful!? I went over today and didn't realise they had hatched, wonderful sight!

Hi Katie,

Thanks, I think the Chicks are just devine, but then again so are the Mandarin Chicks that are across the other side from the swans. Pity I missed you at the Pond, it would be nice to put a face to your name.

The mandarin's are gorgeous too! I had never seen any till last week, and fell in love with them! I'm sure at some point we'll all bump into each other!
