Today I spent most of the day well late morning until about 4pm looking for birds the weather was not great with it being grey blustery and with the odd light shower. I still had a good day I started the morning watching the birds in the garden while having some breakfast, then went over to Longham Lakes it was a bit windy here in places but still a nice selection of the usual birds were there though I did not see any Lapwings or Shoveler on this trip.
It was a hard day though at times and by 4pm I had run out of steam and decided to call it a day and Head home as I had been out since 10am and got out without doing the washing up of the breakfast plates.
So what about the birds well I did not get anywhere near a 100 for the day but not a bad list for one
1- Mute Swan
2- Greylag Goose
16-Great Crested Grebe
17- Common Buzzard
29-Great Black-backed Gull
