Birding time at the weekend was spent watching birds that were behaving out of the ordinary due to the extreme cold temperatures -15 degrees C for the last couple of mornings.
The Water Rails at Pit-house West seemed pleased with the kilo of sprats intended for the Bittern and showed to just a few feet at times, though they never sat still long enough for good shots.
At Bolehill, Roy once again showed that he has the eyes of a Shit-house Rat, by pulling out four Jack Snipe sitting motionless and extremely well camouflaged among the leaf litter of the semi frozen stream.
I've just posted my first (sub) post on new multi author (it's all the rage apparently) birding blog The Crow Council. It's crap (my post not the blog) so skip mine and read the other stuff. We don't have McKinney or Garner and none of us live in bird rich South America but I'm sure it'll be fun and at least keep you off Nerd Forum for a few minutes each day. If all else fails I'll get my arse out as looking at the hits counter since last week you sick bastards clearly like that kind of thing!
