Red-Breasted Goose - OFF the patch (list)

It's plastic......there's no doubt now, its got a coloured ring on its leg...bugger, it has to come offuv the list, oh well, some you win...................

(Seemingly it was seen well at Linton pond this afternoon sporting a nice bit of Darvik - probably coming to a loaf of sunblest)


Called at Dru tonight, nothing much to report, there was a dodgy diving duck on the Budge Fields, turned up whilst I was there, spent most of the time diving in two foot of water, it was a female pochard, some something wasn't right about it...the bill looked too large and the head too dark, maybe it was just the light? Anyways it's a year tick, so back on 94.


I spent some time playing with the new camera, got some nice heron shots...

if you were up early this morning (only 7am) you could have had barn owl (2) quatering the 'patch' in fantastic light for your new toy.
I dropped by after work.
Simply stunning, close views, alas no camera.

I have seen 7am a few times, normally when I am just getting home....or waking up in a field....or still drinking Gin as the sun comes through the curtains in some strangers front room....
