A brief Knot this morning continued the last few days unprecedented wader influx - waders in winter are rare here. Better still was a male Merlin on the 'plain' perched on posts and then hunting Meadow Pipits, only the second record here.
Unusually for the time of year I managed a couple of mid-weeks visits this week. Too nice a morning yesterday to resist a visit, so taking advantage of some flexi-time I had a couple of hours on the patch scoring a useful year tick in the form of a Grey Plover.
I snook off early on Wednesday to take in the gull roost and refound the Caspian Gull , though frustratingly (again) I failed to get any decent images.
