10th July. Deadlock Broken, Breaking Bad

Last nights brief visit to the patch, between heavy downpours, produced a much expected year tick with five Common Scoter on the largest of the two lakes.

Another wet visit this morning revealed that the summer doldrums were truly over with an obvious movement of waders taking place and another Common Scoter. A total of 7 Dunlin, 7 Ringed Plover, 2 Common Sand', 3 Black-tailed Godwit and a very nice partial summer plumage Ruff.  Seems other local sites also noted wader movement, perhaps returning failed breeders?

The last month quiet spell gave me the chance to feed my current TV addiction - Breaking Bad. In a nutshell it's the story of a chemistry teacher who, following being diagnosed with terminal cancer starts to 'cook' Crystal Meth (Methamphetamine) as a way of supporting his family once he's gone.  That probably sounds a bit crap, trust me it is by far the best US drama I've ever seen.  Unfortunately it's not available in the UK except via Netflix (series 1-3) and by illegal streaming of series 4. The whole story is as addictive as the Crystal Meth' that Walter (the main character) produces, that by series 3 you will do anything to get your hands on series 4 - anything..
