birds : Yesterday lunchtime went for another Bittern search down the Claire Mare but again no joy. I was impressed with the back of the reserve where the guys have dug away at the ground, which has flooded in the wet and created an excellent muddy pond right by the roadside. Anything that gets on there will show really well. On the Aerodrome there was still many many Lapwing and the Black-tailed Godwit was amongst them.

This lunchtime I went to visit the Grande Mare hoping to see how the Lesser Scaup has progressed but I couldn't find it (even though it was seen there today). It seems that one bird has disappeared which was quite surprising as I thought that they would stay together. I popped up to the Reservoir to see if it was there but there were just 2 male Pochards.

nonsense : Now that the weather has dried up a bit the little 'uns have been getting use of the trampoline we got them for Christmas. Here are some flight shots of the munchkins . . . . .
