The two things that I love about February are that it's only 28 days long and it's next to March. The most frustrating thing is that it's just not light enough to go birding before work and just too dark to go after.
Birding during the last week consisted of just the Saturday morning around PHW, which was fairly quiet, dull and very wet under foot- just like your typical February day.
A text from Martin on Sunday afternoon alerted me to a Giant Canada Goose at RVCP. Now I don't much care for all this super species, sub-species, race stuff so I did a casual trawl of the net for an image or two. I must say I was a little disappointed and expected something with the name giant to look a little like this..
When this is actually what I found..
There clearly needs to be a law introduced to stop the use of words such as giant when clearly they are not - they're just a bit bigger.
