Recent Highlight's,25-26th June & 01.07.2017.

Because of the high volume of Dragonfly recording and the lack of birding lately,i have again decided to put together a bit of a compilation of sightings and added some of the photo's taken on my visits to both the cracking Crowle Moor NNR and fantastic little reserve at Messingham Sand Quarries.
 To be honest,bird highlight's have been few and far between,but a lovely sighting at Crowle on the 25th June saw the confirmed breeding of Cetti's Warbler,as a pair were seen feeding fledged young and yesterday a cracking 2nd calendar year Hobby was watched hawking dragons at Messingham. 
 The following is a selection from the above dates of some of the fantastic  highlights observed on my visits to both these amazingly diverse reserves.
