Most of my local breeding birds, especially those that migrate here for the summer, are undergoing postnuptial moult before returning to Africa. Not surprisingly, the adults are looking worse for wear, so this immature Woodchat Shrike looks in better shape than corresponding adults. Quite different from the parent birds, the plumage of the immatures allows a certain amount of camouflage against detection by predators. #serraniaderonda

Good to have been out early yesterday, before temperatures raged above 100ºF. Good company, good birding and a great lunch, enjoyed my day in #serraniaderonda

Nova Scotia was such a surprise for its diverse and beautiful landscapes. Quite apart from the hospitality I enjoyed from so many treasured old friends, the nature was stunning and inspiring. Here a photo of one of my favourite moments, an Evening Grosbeak. #NovaScotia

I just love my local area at this time of year. So many birds, so much activity, it is hard to concentrate on a single bird to take a diary photograph. One bird that presented itself was this male Roller, thank you Mr Roller.

Warblers are tending to attract my attention more than other families of birds just now. Males are constantly harassing each other and proclaiming territory at every given opportunity. Dartford Warbler are widespread in my mountains and no less attractive for their common status...

Is it possible, ever, to overdose on Bee Eater sightings? Just to be around them makes me a happy man, such a cheerful bird and what colours! #serraniaderonda
