Car dropped off for some minor tinkering 2pm/4pm today, so just me, the bins and the birds on Beacon Lane and about Arcot.
Twenty-nine species noted with not too much effort; Golden Plover (GP) (18 of 'em) on the field at the horse farm on the lane, and the patch list increased by four (the GPs, Coot and Cormorant on Arcot lake and Reed Bunting (lake side)).
Point of intrigue? Whilst on the shore looking north, a huge swirl in the water but nothing seen. Either a fish or an otter?
