Over halfway there

Broke through the magical 50% barrier this morning by bagging the wintering whimbrel down in Dirk. Not much else doing - had 2 merlins knocking about today, one of which just edged onto the BWI garden bird survey by hunting through the garden and a few GNDs but quiet otherwise. Still, the dugbirds will be back soon....


  1. Verra nice, but did you check the merlin for wing tags ? You know what these raptors can be like.

  2. they all appeared to have wings, but no tags were observed! Another wan/wan of the same seen again today, razzing linnets.
