NEW SCOPE


and here it is!
picked it up from sherwoods optics near morton baggot, warks, the shop has an array of bird feeders and the range of birds on them was huge, tested out my scope on the feeders after i set it up, first bird i scoped with it was a marsh tit, then i moved onto one of the 2 great spotted woodpeckers. then onto the highight of the session, a WILLOW TIT, it was also heard calling backing up the identity.
species noted were:
WILLOW TIT 1
MARSH TIT 2
G S woodpecker 2
phesant 1 (f)
coal tit 3
chaffinch 30c
nuthatch 1
jay 1
not a bad haul for 10 mins of watching the feeders........
although just up the road was 2 little egrets and a green sandpiper, which we didnt know about untill later that evening, bummer
