I’m having a nice little run looking at wet stuff. The Great Duck Hunt managed to pull a Great Northern Diver in to view on a patch of water I’d given up doing WeBS on as it was so duff. So that was nice. And this lunchtime I found two Pintail sat on the ice at Blunham – none of the hoped-for Smew though.
Biggest gaps are Jay, Red Kite, Marsh Tit, and Mandarin, but as I’ve got all year to find them I’m not too worried. But the big news is that a Woodcock zoomed out from under some scrub while out ‘Duck Hunting’ - so that’s in the bag already, 50 weeks ahead of last year.
