Happy House.

Another futile walk around the patch, on the strength of a Red-backed Shrike at Virkie and a Marsh Warbler on Whalsay, there was maybe a chance of getting something half decent - no way Pedro - 2 House Martins and 5 Sanderling was about it ! Seems that Wrens are having a good year, with at least 3 broods now wandering around Scatness (though numbers may decline rapidly if they discover my moth trap !)

House Martins.

I love the expression on that young wren's face. It almost needs a caption,like: "Why are you pointing that bl**dy camera at me". LOL..
Not sure if the Wrens we have here in West Norway are exactly the same breed, but they're very adaptive little birds. They nest quite happily in the production hall I work in, and they don't seem to mind the noise and welding flashes. It's not uncommon to find one walking around the floor among the welders.
