Here and there

Managed another couple of addition to my fledgling Holmpton list in the form of a nice group of Golden Plover (44) circling the village at dusk on Sunday afternoon plus a passing Red-throated Diver flying North.

Bucketing down at North Duffield today. Hopefully a prelude to the Derwent bursting it's banks down on the the reserve.

Severe weather at the moment with the torrential rain following the gale force winds. Still daylight time is ever increasing. I've heard Mistle Thrush, Collared Dove and Tawny Owl prospecting for partners. The first hint of Spring?

There's optimism for you!
