Matt had dropped me a txt while i was at the gardening job about a certain good bird down at the lakes, so after the job me and my dad headed down there
We parked up and i walked down to where matt was standing and he said the juv ARCTIC TERN was still down showing on a boyd. i watched it for about 15 mins untill i decided i fancied something rarer. but before i left i spotted a little grebe beside the road, which matt told me was only the 3rd record this year
But before i reached the hide i spotted this BARNACLE GOOSE.
But i was very quicky into the Cuckoo hide to be treated with distant views of a stunning lifer !!!!!
sure it was about as far from the hide as it could get, as the videos will show, but at least its features could be seen through the scope..........
but while this bird was distant, one secretive bird crept about in the channel a few metres from the hide, Proberbly the closest view of a WATER RAIL i have ever had.
I know a short post, but some class birds to talk about
