|Skeffling Sei Whale|
Aside from the whale the birding was pretty good with juvenile Hen Harrier, Short-eared Owl, Whooper Swan and some confiding Twite all seen off survey. Some distant White-fronted Geese were a bonus and a couple of skeins of Pink-footed Geese were expected fare although nice nonetheless.
A trip to Tophill Low yesterday for an hour failed to produce the expected Greenland White-fronted Goose amongst its Russian cousins but on D reservoir were three Whooper Swans which were a nice find. Cue record shot.
This post was more in depth but blogger deleted it so I had to start from scratch. There should be plenty more to blog about in the coming weeks if all goes to plan but there may be plenty which I cant say...cryptic!
