Update: Upton Warren 10/10/2010...Fisheries 16/10/2010
The Pectoral Sandpiper very kindly waited at the Flashes for me to return from my holiday! What a beautiful little wader! I was so pleased that it hung around for so long for me to see it, I had my doubts when I could see it reported the day before I went away.
I had a short linger at the Fisheries this afternoon, blow me it was cold!!! A few Gulls flying high, too high for me to ID them. Not that I am any good at Gull ID's mind! Magpies and Crows in the paddocks, a G S Woodpecker flew through and I heard a Buzzard, other than these species it was very quiet! Dark clouds were rolling over and rain was clearly visible dropping from them in the distance so I thought it time to make my way home. A Jay was mooching along a hedgerow as I drove down a lane towards home! I managed to get my washing in and garage my car before a quick shower of rain! A welcome cuppa soon warmed me up!
