Siberian Visitors, Gannets in Action and a few Bugs.

Shore Lark, Blyth 
 
The past few weeks have been exceptionally busy, bird wise. I've added so many new birds to my year list. White-winged TernYellow-browed Warblers, Pallas' Warbler(s), Raddes Warbler, Dusky Warbler, Olive-backed Pipit, Richard's Pipit(s), Red-flanked Bluetail(s), Little Bunting, Shore Lark, Bluethroat, WryneckWhite-rumped Sandpiper (also a Northumbrian tick), Siberian Stonechat, Isabelline Shrike, Blyth's Reed Warbler, Hume's Leaf Warbler and the odd Great Grey Shrike. No wonder I feel tired! Loads of great birds but hardly a photograph worth a damn.
 
Here are some of them, plus a "few" videos. There are also some bugs & Gannet in Action pics.
