New Forest, Hampshire

In March 2017 I went to the New Forest with some friends for a few days. We stayed on the coast at Milford on Sea, just west of Lymington. We had a couple of lovely walks along the coast, I went to RSPB Arne in neighbouring Dorset, and we also explored a little of Lymington itself and some nearby areas of the New Forest.


We saw lots of birds and some of them were either the first time I'd seen them or photographed them: Spotted Redshank (R1, P5 and R4, P4) Spoonbills (R2, P2), Goldcrest (R3, P3) Long Tailed Tit (R3, P5) Treecreeper (R3, P6) Turnstone (R4, P3) Teal (R4, P5) Goldfinch (R4, P8) and Lapwing (R4, P10). I think I might be becoming a bit of a twitcher. It's nice to be able to identify the birds I've photographed!
