A visit to Keyhaven reminded us just how much we have to learn when it comes to distinguishing the various wading birds. A few of them came close enough for some recognition shots, including the Greenshank (pictured) and a Grey Plover. The most abundant wader though was the Turnstone and perhaps the most spectacular sight was the formation landing of a flock of Swans. I got some reasonable new photos of the Lapwings, too.

A walk in the New Forest produced nothing in the way of photographs - the Buzzards just wouldn't come low enough!
