Checking my pager during a rest period at work, I read a message I'd been dreading. A "good bird" in the village!
A VERY good bird in fact...Pallas's Warbler!!
No chance of having a stab with one of the longest shifts on the rota. Just proves though that great birds do like Holmpton...that's the happy bit.
I contacted a couple of mates who searched for it (Rich Willison and Phil Jones) but neither saw the bird. I also received a text from Tim Jones...much appreciated pal.
Congrats to the finder...it just makes me more determined to "find my own". It's not easy I can tell you...plus there's the constant temptation of a certain site down the road...
Late news of a couple of Hawfinches in "Kew gardens" yesterday. I spent some time scanning but just Thrushes and Blackcaps for me...
2 to go...then 11 off...hope that MEGA'S on the way?
