Today was a better day weatherwise but I had a few jobs to do. I didn't bother taking the scope with me and you just know that was a mistake! Most of the things I saw were distant and the scope would have come in handy so the 27 Lapwings, 20 fieldfare and 80 Starling were nice to see. A couple of Kestrels that would have been good shots were just admired. A pair of WT Eagle looked like this...
..but the Blue Tit was just in range.
It was a pleasant run out with some nice encounters and also good not to have the digiscoping kit! I did nip out just before it got dark to count the GN Diver for the first time this year and 38 birds was a good return.
