Yesterday the local patch came up with the goods yet again when Gordon Hay discovered a male Whinchat on Mercers Farm in the old paddocks next to the oak trees where one of our Little Owls resides.

It was a lovely morning, I just wish I could have stayed a bit longer.
After our walk this afternoon, I had a quick look around the Water Colour Lagoons and the Moors on the patch, where I saw three Little Ringed Plover and a pair of Shelduck. No Reed Warblers as yet, these tend to arrive a bit later, as the reeds are still underdeveloped around the site.
Tonight, as a forfeit, I'm working until late to make up for skiving off. There's always a down side.
