The Local Patch.......

As Trace was at work this morning,i spent a rainy 4 hours on the patch this morning,using the car as a hide to shelter from the showers.The best bird was a cracking Juv. Whinchat watched flycatching from the barbed wire fence on the way down to the river.When i first watched this little beauty,it was in a pretty bedraggled state,but as the sun came out,he or she looked in mint condition after its feathers dried out.The only other notable bird was a single Little Egret watched fishing in the many ponds in the pasture fields,always great to see this cracking heron,a beauty!.Other birds recorded included at least 9 Common Buzzard in the area,35 Meadow Pipit,6 Grey Partridge and a single Chiffie.A decent few hours,despite the rain.
