Spent an hour with Haydn on Skipwith this morning. I bored him with a few holiday anecdotes and we connected with a few "good birds". Marsh Harrier (site tick), Buzzard (c4), Woodlark and Tree Pipit were all recorded.
After lunch I payed a visit you know where and again reflected on what might be seen in drier times! In a couple of hours I managed 37sp including 2 year ticks in the form of House Sparrow (95) and House Martin (96). High hopes, as ever, of something good passing through...not today.
