HINDERWELL FROM UGTHORPE.......Yesterday whilst the south basked in the expected Indian Summer I was blasted by winds that hurricane Bill would have been proud of. This is the last of the Hay and almost the last of my camera. No chance of any serious picture taking, keeping the tripod upright was a full time job.
Booked in here for another couple of days as Scaling reservoir has a bird hide, went down this morning as you birdmen and birdwomen have inspired me. Not a great success but give me time, I knew it wouldn't be easy. This Cormorant welcomed me with open arms, well wings.
LAPWING......Definitely more practice needed. I include these appalling images so that I can, hopefully, look back and think why was there a problem.
LAPWINGS AND THE CORMORANT.......About an hour after dawn, thought I ought to go early as I suspect dogs are not welcome in St Vitasers, sorry Twitchers hides.
WONDERED WHERE YOU'D GOT TO
Not the most successful of days, the hide was a good hundred metres from the nearest bird. Perhaps that should be the other way round. There was a Canada Goose with a broken wing. Inaccessible to me, no phone numbers to phone other than the police, so couldn't help. It's mate wasn't about so presume an unattached one. Hope somebody else finds it.
