The title did get you interested. Just admit it!
Another try for the Mandarin Duck today proved successful and I saw it again. A lovely bird and un ringed so yes I am ticking it! Also present was a drake Wigeon and apart from that not much else of note. Gave some of my friends the heads up and one of them (DC – who lets me use his images) came and saw it and this was most likely a year tick for him. I went for a walk this afternoon and was hoping to see Woodcock but still no suck luck! Like Merlin this is becoming a bogey bird for me! Even though I have seen 1 definite Merlin I have never seen a Woodcock to date.
The Mediterranean Gull I discovered on Saturday still remains in the same location and showed really well and was nice to watch whilst I waited for the bus to 6th form college. I don’t have any exams until May so yes I can sit on here and type away whatever I want. A downside is that I need to work very hard throughout the year on Coursework hence why I don’t post so much!
