14th Jan 2010 - Thor / Leo

snow starting to go


the ice will take a bit longer - some open water at Ch'Moor.


one day i'll get a real camera

Met up with Foghorn for a couple of hours
There was no sign of our intended target, but we managed a few nice birds inc Jack Snipe, Water Rail, Short-eared Owl



Ch Moor
The only ice free water in the local area - worth keeping an eye on. 2pr Wigeon, 10Lapwing, 20Teal, 3Snipe, Pied Wagtail, Heron, 16Moorhen etc. Again many gulls on flood water including a 2nd winter Med Gull.
