|a bit closer|
After lunch I had a ride up to Rimswell (another Wheatear was seen on the way on a manure heap). I like this site and reckon it has lots of potential. The usual stuff on the pond and a nice group of 24 Curlew on the Carrs plus close fly-by views of a Barn Owl.
I then decided to try a couple of sites around the village. It was then I heard a familiar sound of Spring...two notes...

I gave Phil a text, he soon appeared and within 10 minutes we'd picked one up in a nearby bush...
My earliest record ever by 10 days.
(More) eventful bits...
- Buddy going AWOL on the cliff for a while. He's now worked out how to get down on the beach. I found him back at the car!
- After a long discussion with my Surgeon I've decided to wait for the results of the blood test before choosing my hip resurfacing/replacement.
