Wonders will never cease

Wow! This year-list is coming on a treat! Today we nipped out at lunchtime to Broom gravel pits. It was spectacularly free of birds, with the exceptions being:
  • a small number of Tufted Ducks
  • two Little Grebes
  • two Mallards
  • two Coot
  • two Mute Swans
Just as well a Green Sandpiper called to save the day, getting itself onto the year-list at last.

We saw the Barn Owl on the way home, too.

Species added today:
113. Green Sandpiper

Yes, m'dear. Well, I knew they should be there- it was just a matter of locating them.

Good job we know their call!
