Another misty morning on the way in at 5.30am - looks like it's gonna be a good day, Chiffies will be singing, White Wags tail pumping, and Wheatears strutting - in my imagination at least.
I will be staring at a computer screen.
Anyone know who saw the Pectoral Sandpiper reported from Marshside (junction pools, early afternoon) yesterday?
Any more info?
Meanwhile Derek Williams has sent me his latest sightings from the mosses around Haskayne, which rather nicely compliment Eddie Barford's fine early morning shot taken in the area.
Derek's records, March 17 to 21:
White Wagtail 3 (19.3.07); Curlew 211; Mallard 80; Cormorant 4; Shelduck 4; Kingfisher 2; Blackbird 22; Yellowhammer 1m; Raven 2; Moorhen 37; Golden Plover 34; Coot 16; Little Owl ; Tufted Duck 2; Stock Dove 15; Oystercatcher 11; Fieldfare 165 (19.3.07).
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
