Man Flu

Woke up this morning with man flu, but bravely got up and headed for East Chevington. The north pool was very choppy with the strong wind and held the Black-throated Diver and 3 Long-tailed Duck. No sign of the Red-necked Grebe and the Bearded Tit again failed to 'ping' past.

The drive to the north side gave a Marsh Harrier hunting by the road. The feeders at the hide had loads of Lesser Redpoll and 3 Siskin, but no sign of any Mealies while I was there.

Lesser Redpoll
After East Chev I caught up with a distant, scruffy Black-necked Grebe and then headed for Prestwick Carr. Having failed twice after work this week I wasn't overly confident in the Short-eared Owl showing on such a windy day. Hit lucky as a pair of angry Lapwing forced the owl up briefly before it disappeared behind a hedge.
