A Few Spring Birds and a North Yorks Adder

Just a few pics of birds from around my South Yorkshire patch now spring migration is in full swing. Probably got my best shots of my favourite wading bird the Lapwing, tried to photograph a drumming Snipe but not easy.

 Common Buzzard

 I heard a Green Woodpecker but then saw this Greater spotted and thought I was going mad but the Green was in the same tree lower down.

 Ring Ouzel

 Meadow Pipit

 Drumming Snipe

 Matt Wilson's favourite bird Male Northern Wheatear
Another favourite of Matt Wilson Golden Plover
Today I ventured to North Yorkshire where I met Matt Wilson and Katerina to investigate an area that may have adders. The problem at this time of the year is they get difficult to see especially after a nice week of weather. Anyway we found one female and a couple of skins.
