After a brisk start to the year the weekend was a complete damp squib and much effort only scratched the pc list up to 50. This weather whilst warm seems to be suppressing everything. My patch should be busy given the flooding. Anyhow a flock of 159 Greylag Geese fed in fields near Horton Grange this afternoon and were searched fruitlessly for White fronts.
Further up the road yesterday the strange sight of a Buzzard hovering over the opencast berm with grass, leaves and or wire dangling from its leg making it look just like a kite (the one on a string). Hopefully it could get rid of its hangers on. Yes, I stopped for the shot but it flew away before camera could be aimed.
