another gap!

well its been a while - didn't post about the expedition to north of Manchester to see a Pied -billed Grebe- sorry!
I went , I saw and I ticked!

Still in need of waxwings tho!
I have been a bit too committed to work to drop stuff and go any distance and I managed to miss those in Surrey!

Well depends on the weather but might go somewhere over the w/e....

I have to sort out some trips to do my Atlas work - in December.

Busy but another UK lifer

Been really busy lately - but had time for a foray to Cornwall!
Yes in pursuit of an American Bittern - a UK lifer for me having had fantastic views of one in Canada in 2004(in fact I had spotted it for the group - not that we had known it was present - so I call it a self found- lol!)

Anyway I was not able to go to Cornwall when the bird first appeared - so was lucky it relocated to a better site!

Thanks to the members of the Walmsley Sanctuary for allowing access. a good twitch!
