Total P*sser!

Just has Sometimes on the dog'n'bone (text) to say he has just had a Hobby through West Hartford!  What a complete downer.  Never seen one; and on my door step too!

The perfect end to a perfect day.

No Scaup at a very choppy (and surprisingly aquamarine in colour) Cresswell this morning.

No Roseate Terns at East Chev (but 28 summer plumage Knot were pleasing on the eye).

Zilch at Bothal (unless you like Coots) and even less at Arcot (unless you like Moorhens)!

The only person smiling right now is Vipers!

I could really do with something for the weekend!

Bijou Trip-ette

In between lengthy work-related periods of keeping the public safe, I managed an hour with the dog around WH tonight.  Not a lot to to see.  Adult and juvenile BHG on the main Flash that is now bone dry apart from a small area in the NE corner.  Another adult/juv BHG on the smaller and wetter Flash, and a Barn Owl over eastwards carrying prey at 7:05pm.  A Barn Owl was seen again 15 minutes later on the far west edge near the farm being mobbed by ane adult BHG.
