20th April. Larking Around.

Another dreary dismal morning at RV produced just 3 Yellow Wagtails during a two hour walk. Back home for some DIY, which was interrupted by a couple of 'mega alerts' from RBA. Both alerts were of rare Larks; Calandra Lark and the ultra rare Black Lark. Fortunately with both of these on the list it was easy to carry on banging and screwing. The latter bird was added to my list some 5 years ago when most birders managed to see the South Stack bird. The former however was only added two years ago, on the Isle of May, after a nightmare boat crossing on an inflatable dingy thing. This, I can honestly say, was the single most frightening thing I have ever done I think the photos speak for themselves.
