16 Feb - Four Letter Word

No, none of these but :-
W O R K !!!

What could be worse
No chance of any birding this week
or is there . . .

Yesterday saw us at Sunlund,
a GSW chipping away as soon as we parked up.
2 skeins of noisy Pinks went over, a dead Blacky ( "can we count dead birds" LOL ) , a Brambling over & 2 cock Greenfinch in display flights.

Today just outside Durham City,
pair of Siskin in garden, the cock singing. Green Woodpecker yaffling on & off through day, a mixed flock of House & Tree Sparrows, with a Sparrowhawk whizzing close past. A decent vantage point produced, Greylags north, Cormorant over & a Peregrine over north heading for Durham.

Home, packed away & back out for 5 with the "her".
Good job a fetched her along 'cos she picked the location & also picked up white Ermine hunting & another very special white one floating about, much to the delight of another JW - his 1st of the year !
Moved on & a male Leo appeared bang on 17:30 & we had un-interupted scope views of him as he began singing from a low perch. Decent hunting action with the whiteone in the back ground at the same time.

Four Letter Word ......... - NICE.
