A bit of pointing skywards for this weeks WORLD BIRD WEDNESDAY entry.
During a recent visit to Stodmarsh, Kent I failed miserably at getting any decent flight shots of a Hobby or a Marsh Harrier but an overflying Common Tern (Sterna hirundo) just managed to get into the frame.

Another sign of Spring is the emergence of the Banded Demoiselle (Calopteryx splendens). The metallic sheen of the blue-green body and the formation of its distinctive blue-black wing band glistened as this male soaked up the filtered sunshine. Taken during a visit to Stodmarsh, Kent today. FAB.
