Local viewing

Spent most of the day in the hut (due to the lousy weather) putting in two stints, 9.30-12.00 and 2-4. The morning was by far the better period with better light and more activity, culminating in the arrival of "the Whoopers" at noon. I managed a few basic shots (including my new header). I'm not a great counter, but I did grill them and there were definitely 97 present. Others have had over 100. Also added Meadow Pipit (69) and unbelievably late...Redshank! (70). Other notable birds came in the form of...Pink-footed Goose, Pochard 62, Goldeneye fem/imm, Golden Plover c40, Curlew 7, Oystercatcher 3, Tree Sparrow c40, Bullfinch fem.

Feeding time...
