First Footing

Did a totally unplanned trip around the Patch today to get the list started. Great weather which added to the day. Scored a modest 56 species and didn't enjoy much luck.

Highlights were 40 Pink-footed Geese heading south down the peninsula early doors...

and one of the two LTD on Beacon Ponds (very late doors?)...

Greenshank was also a surprise at Beacon Ponds.

Many glaring omissions on the day but who cares, I'll get 'em later!

Couldn't return home without finding a Barn Owl. Quite a challenge tonight but I did it at 16.46...chuffed...

Exposure 5/8 of a second!

For the record I saw 192 species last year.

I hope 2013 is good to you...and me!!
