Managed a bit of a coo today in that I blagged a sponsorship from the very excellent Pieminister. I won't go into what I get out of it, let's just say they gave me what I asked for! Please take the time to visit their website and salivate over the delicious pies. I will of course continue my independent pie reviews from all suppliers!
Despite the excellent clag conditions this morning there was nothing of note at Orgreave. An evening visit was slightly better with a decent flock of hirundines including at least 12 Sand Martins. A Wheatear, 4 Ringed Plover and a feeding Greenshank (they usually go straight through) provided some padding for the notebook - but that elusive scarce is still - well - elusive!
