Enough of the sillyness. Back down on Orgreave this morning and fortunately the Lap Bunts were still present. Infact they had increased to three and had stopped being so flighty though still difficult to find among the grass. I did however manage my own photos this time - which were a bit crap!
Another new addition on the Orgreave list (photo at Catcliffe) was this Red-Crested Pochard - which was annoyingly found by Duncan!
A change of scenery in the afternoon with a stroll around the Botanical Gardens - that hot bed of rare action and supression in the late 80's (it's all water under the bridge these days). Enjoying a coffee outside the cafe I was quite pleased to see a party of 27 or so Waxwings flycatching from the tops of some nearby trees. Keeping the theme of the day going I took more crap shots!
