Timber-doodle tooo!

Another eco-powered few ticks as I headed out on the bike once more. I rode down Borden Lane near Old Warden and trampled around in some damp woods looking for a Woodcock. 1st attempt- nothing, then managed to flushed one whilst watching a Marsh Tit! A good start that got better when I found a male Brambling in a finch flock north of Southill in the rose fields................I'm struggling with the hotly contested Waterfowl Cup though as there is very little of note at Broom.

I see the usual suspects have raced into the lead already. The big question is will Darren do a 'real' eco list this year, or will he count hitching lifts with Steve as 'Enviromentally Friendly'? LOL!


  1. Hey Matt, I meet Steve more because I want to see him than to go birding, so the lifts count as 'social events.' The birding is ancilliary, so I'll be trying for a 100% eco-list...I have no choice in that matter really! D

  2. Glad to hear it!..............Let's hope it catches on.
