Barking bay

Finally managed to get out this morning over the patch, the wind was freezing and so was i. Managed to add 2 more year ticks for the patch in 5 Tufted duck  and a Sparrowhawk. 40 species all in all wasn't too bad considering the weather. Didn't manage any decent pics i was shaking with the cold.

Not a great day but just nice to get out for a few hours.

Off the mark

Finally managed to get out on the patch yesterday afternoon (03/01/13) for a couple of hours after work. Only managed 33 species about 14 less than my first outing last year. As i was arriving Paul was leaving and we had a quick look for the Jack snipe that had been showing recently before he left, but no luck. Several species i would have expected were missing but there is plenty of time left.l didn't manage any photo's worth publishing but i am hoping to vastly improve my skills this year. Happy new year and hope you all have a  good birding year.
