Ducking and diving
Fresh back from The Philippines it was good to see it was bloomin’ freezing and a slight change in birds locally. Good numbers of ducks at Blunham on 1st found Richard and I a nice set of five Goldeneye, but not a lot of extra spice amongst the standard Gadwalls and Wigeon. A visit to Derek’s on 2nd found me looking at five Dunlin scurrying around the muddy edge, and a lunchtime visit to Broom GP on 2nd scored a red-head Smew on Gypsy Lane West. Not a bad start to the month.
