Forgot to update the blog yesterday and today has been a non birding day! However yesterday was a good day for photography so I set out along the North Wall expecting to get some really good shots in the excellent lighting conditions but alas there was an absence of birds. I met a birder/photographer on holiday who was crouched by the rife with a Nikon 500 and he too was disappointed at the birdless scene and despite having tracked down a Little Grebe there was little else. A couple came along and mentioned they had just had superb close up views of a Beardy so the pair of us made haste to the spot and waited in vain to even hear a 'ping'!
On the return a few Curlews flew over and there was a drake Teal just within range so that was it. Heres to the next fine day.
I note from various blogs including Portland that the past few days have been quiet so I'm not alone...roll on the first Spring migrants!
