Decided to spend my day off down at Spurn after the obligatory dog walk and dearth of birds on the clifftop bushes.
2 hours around the south side of the Gas terminal proved fruitless.
Then a report of a Little Bunting seen by Mick Turton on the north side...but no further sightings as far as I'm aware.
Home for lunch rather late as I bumped into my mate Vince and his pal.
As I turned the last corner before the village I spotted a "Buzzard" drifting slowly south in the distance. I'd put my bins in the case but the camera was handy and I managed to rattle a few snaps off. No specs in the car...but no probs, I'll take a look later.
Back down to Canal scrape car park were I bumped into Vince again. "Did you see the Rough-legged?" he asked!!
Even then, me being me, the penny didn't really drop! I said this was an honest post.
I spent mid-afternoon around Kew and the churchyard. I did have good views of a Firecrest but not as good as when Adam caught it/one...
So, great stuff. Another sighting of one of my favourite birds. I was feeling the pace a bit now so I decided to head home.
I downloaded my photos. Lets see what I managed on the "Buzzard"...
Just shows...never assume anything, as a young colleague at work once told me!!!
My defence has already been posted. Feeble I know, but there it is...
