4th March: It's still crap!

Despite going birding every day since Sunday it's still crap. Walked round the Main Lake at RVCP this afternoon and noted ducks various in insignificant numbers two Egyptian Geese present since 2006, Shelduck present since 2006 and a much reduced number of Wigeon. On the Reserve 20 Goosanders.

A good old fashioned twitch during February 89'. Yes it is 19 years since the Golden-winged Wobbler. Halcyon days.

That's what most of the residents thought as well! I remember lots of trouble at that one - police vans bombing up and down carting great lumps of birders off to the nick. A stampede on the first Sunday caused one angry local to set his dogs on the bird nerds resulting in some rather unpleasant injuries. Happy days indeed!

I can see Bernie Beck and his old squeeze in there I think. Tim Twigg also showing, I think, but he's skulking a bit so not 100%.

Ps. I like being a geek.
