I really don't have a great deal to show since my last post.
I've had my arm operated on. It's painful, mostly after a period of inactivity. Which in itself is a pain as I'm under strict instructions to limit the movement during the first week. Hmm, OK then!
I got out to the quarry a couple of times. I cheat, I jump on the number 7 bus all of 50 feet from the front door, get off at Moulton Park industrial estate and walk the 3 miles to the quarry. I do look a bit strange big camera bag on shoulders, dressed like a forest ranger (lol) but it guarantees me my own seat at least lol. Against a grey sky bit the Buzzards are displaying brilliantly with up to six birds visible at one time.
Quite a few Skylarks have taken to the fields surrounding the quarry, 12 in total which is providing a great soundtrack. Also some Meadow Pipits keep passing over too and a very vocal Song Thrush is declaring it's territory. A Grey Wagtail takes advantage of the the puddles and the "lorry wash" which I cleaned out last summer of oil/diesel and other rubbish is like a make shift pond which this Grey Wagtail was using...
On unrelated birding news, my Mack was at Crufts on Saturday, I didn't go. The arm and the medication (tremadoyl..spelt wrong, strong painkillers) meant I wasn't up for it. My mum showed him (as usual) for me...he got a First in class which qualifies him for next year's Crufts so a happy note to end on.
