Hitting the Wall

The day started well with 3 Jack Snipe bouncing around like Zebedees on Shooters Pool and another couple flushed from the track to the Project Pool. Redwing zipped overhead while Goldcrest called in numbers. It was feeling good.

It all went down hill. The Garrison produced a single Blackcap and a Wall butterfly, but we then spent 5 hours seeing nothing.
After cake a trip to Porthellick gave another Jack Snipe. Further up the track we had Yellow-browed Warbler, Blackcap and Chiffchaff.
The news of a Grey-cheeked Thrush sent us marching over to Old Town church to spend a fruitless hour.
It will be better tomorrow,
