Ball o' String

Well, my first post of the new year and the pressure is already being piled on by the main protagonists. Tales of Scaup, Owls and Cetti's have certainly sparked me into action. So a week or so back, I dusted of my trusty ecosteed and once more started to SFYL.
2 Snipe sp. and Shelduck have been barely notable as I anticipate better fare............
And then it came!
Is it? Isn't it.............surely not,.......er, yes it is!
So after I told the world about my first ever SF Slav, I brought myself back to earth again.
A long ride round the lake to see Mark T and Jim G (who had rushed to Broom on my account) to say:

"Er, sorry lads- I might have got a bit excited there"

But, I suppose it's better to have a rush of blood than actually find something good and not tell anyone till its dark................................

Like the one wot I saw at Broom today..............

  1. Don't be hard on yourself Matt - you are not 'a cock' and it was not string, because you were not trying to fool anybody. You have my total respect. It takes courage to admit to a mistake. I did it at Broom with Steve on Friday - trying to string a Red Kite into a Marsh Harrier...although he could see where I was coming from! Anyone who claims never to have made an ID error is either deluded or a liar...or both.

    Hope you really do find a Slav.
