I was stuck on a phone conference this afternoon. So spent the time profitably by looking out my front window...
To kick off a short-eared owl on a fence post, followed by another, then another... These were followed by a fine drake goosander, pintail and pair of whooper swans all on Cotehill. Not sure what the outcome of the phone conf was but four nice patch ticks made it.
So after ten days the patch total goes on to 52 species and 33.42%. Somewhere mid-table.
