And the sun shone at last !!
Not so much a dog more a drain cleaner
This is what happens when you try to mix dog walking with bird watching. The older dog Kyfer tends to avoid mud if possible and walk round water if possible (Male you see) where as young dog Misty tends to dive straight in , mud, water, doesn't make any difference, also quite partial to poo of various types (Female you see) say no more.
We had a walk up Thacka but there wasn't a great deal about, 2 Lesser Blackbacks, about half a dozen Oystercatchers, a few Mallard, all on the flood.
On the settling pond there was the usual Mallard, Moorhen, Reed Bunting, and Reed Warbler only heard.
The one thing that was good about the day, and the main talking point with every one I stopped to talk to was the SUN, very warm and very welcome.
