Evenin all ....
Today's sightings come from our resident Great White Hunter ...
Or as he is also known .. Titchers !
He was out capturing stuff again and managed 3 field voles .. No leopards today .. Just field voles ..
Apparently he hides in a bush and pounces on them as they walk past .. He then wrestles them to the ground and gives them a lovebite to the neck before releasing them ... This way, he can tell by checking any new captures for marks whether or not they have been captured before .. No point in counting them twice !!
From a 'birdie' point of view we had another new arrival in the shape of a ringed plover on the Wader Scrape ... Arguably it was, in truth, the shape of a bird of course ..
The Wader Scrape also had 4 oystercatchers, 2 redshanks, a dunlin and 4 curlews .. Waderfest !!
The garden feeder area had a male and a female brambling .. Bramblingfest !!
There were 2 kestrels seen acting amorously by the pylons ... Kestrelfest !!
Stupid Bert ...
There was a green sandpiper reported from the Field Pool and a peregrine seen near to the Bittern Hide ..
Broomhill Flash had a green sandpiper, 6 goldeneyes and a shelduck ..
I had another huge buffet at work and could only manage to force down a chicken sandwich for my tea ...
Friday looms ever closer !
Have a great evening chaps ..
Just how many buffets do they lay on in your workplace............and do they know it's you who scoffs it all?
3 redshanks & dunlin at Wath Ings & a great crested grebe :-) Beautiful day to be at OM.... saw the peregrine and a caterpillar that Titchers said was a moth one...it was brown :-)
We only have buffets if we have high ranking visitors .. You know .. such as the Queen or Ronnie Corbett .. The meeting room is outside my office though .... He he he ....
They always order too much .. They will never learn !!
Rather Princess Anne than the queen, find her to be a fascinating woman............bet that Ronnie Corbett can stash the food! Bet you asked for that office specially didn't you!
There were at least 5 beautiful gooseanders ( 2 on Wath Ings and at least another 3 on the Mere )
Great day out - beautiful spring weather - plenty to see and a superb lunch served up by Jane and her team.
going to look for that leopard today the try and sneak up on one of those buffets
