Popped down for the last hour. Interestingly, numbers of birds had dropped significantly from the morning show. Elaine from the village had the same idea, she commented on my music choices...she likes them! She told me she'd seen a Merlin midweek, possibly the same bird hanging around?
Managed another year bird in the form of a Goldeneye (63), they're scarce at Duff. Whoopers were present early today with c60 on the flood meadow by 3.30.
