Car Park Patch Tick! Car Park Patch Tick!
My Learned Colleague, Crammy Birder, summarises the sedentary nature of birding inland at the moment. A car park patch tick is surely an example of making the mediocre more memorable. My angle is counting how many species I see when I take the dog for a walk. Today it was 12 from leaving Chez Moi to make a return journey round Cramlington's micro-Cumbria, WHIE. Both Flashes are now joined with an aqua-umbilical. The Dirty Dozen were - Robin, Crow, Jackdaw, 3 Gulls (C/BH/H), Mute Swan, Teal, Blackbird, Wren, Mipit and Magpie.
