Fruit of the Loin

Somehow the miracle of creation has entered the chez Spencer and ive found out im going to be a Dad. My wife and I are both over joyed with the new arrival being delivered by Stork in late September. It seems likely that autumn is a near total write off but not too worry...

In other news I spent yesterday at Tophill Low where we mostly showed people a highly showy Woodcock and a couple of Bramblings (a yeartick). The 2 Smew are still on Borrowpits and the GSW with Syrian coloured underparts is still about and a spectacular lookng bird. The Water Rail also continues to come to feeders. Good to see Andy Walker who was out year-ticking for another non-existant yearlist.

Anyway after a very nice Italian in Garforth im dissertation writing today.
