Weasels on Top
Volunteering at Tophill this morning was a little struggle as I had a drink with Ebirder last night. We were fitting a Kingfisher nest into the bank infront of the new North Hide. Lots of lugging of sand, cement and digging of clay left me weak as a kitten. The afternoon was spent on the Borrow Pits looking at the wildfowl. Numbers of Teal have started to drop with 64 present today compared to the usual 110 or so. Whether this is a temporary state of affairs or not I cant say until I go back tomorrow. Little of interest im afraid on the pits but a busy weasel was entertaining and 3 Barn Owls (all different) drifted through.
