Big bird over the patch

Location, Location, Location.
Check out the left chimney pot, a slug trail !! what on earth is a slug doing 30ft up on a chimney pot. Then my Daughter pointed out the trail is in the shape of a Smurf, spooky.
Up at the patch, we have nesting Lapwings on the new Thacka beck reserve, and a short staying Little Ringed Plover, and this evening 2 Ringed Plover. During the day we had a fly over Buzzard, and soon after a Sparrowhawk circled over head. The highlight of the day however was when my phone went off, and a very excited John F. on the line saying White Stork circling over the new reserve. Roy and myself raced to get there but it was a distant speck heading North by the time we arrived. Still at least things have picked up a bit, and not many can count White Stork on their patch list.
