Well, I'm back. A quick I-phone post for now from Lancs. Just recovering from the usual jet lag and 6,000 miles plus!! Tried hard for the 'Snowcock but it wasn't to be. Up at 3, car park by 4 and made the pass in the dark by 6. Covered the tundra then returned to Island Lake to scan the Canyon. Due to the fact this bird is so local it was a big miss. I'll just have to go back one day!
On reflection, more time to connect would have been useful but with the areas covered and the sights to see it was hard to fit everything in and to be honest I'd had it.
Managed 11 ABA ticks and some decent photos of some of them...I'll post some later.
Just checked BUBO...I've made 650!!!
