Overslept today, so bang went the planned trip for Hawfinches. I bobbed my wifes phone into school, a quick trip of 20some miles! Tried for LEO and Little Owl at Fairburn en route but no luck (that Little Owl is an elusive bugger!). Headed from there to a top secret site in Yorkshire for Raven, duly seen and life ticked *chortle chortle* - no chance of Mike seeing that if I have anything to do with it. Also Green Woodpecker and GSW which were all very cute. Get home and get well and truely gripped by the report of a Cattle Egret at Wheldrake - good job I have one for Yorks and year otherwise i'd have cursed those giant crows!
