Five birders thrash their local shrubbery for a whole year, to little real effect. One of them does it using a camel, but none of them is into cars....

Aching muscles & success with Siskin
Friday 27th - a long ride today with a mate.... in fact mainly a long nice bike ride through my 15KM area & on to Wells for delhi style lunch! But stopped 3x en-route back twice for dips on Short-eared Owl (present a week ago!) nr the Ryburghs then a successful stop for Siskin (81) at Hempton NOA, where incidentally I saw my 4th Woodcock of my NML.
A beautiful day with 48 miles clocked, way beyond anything I have ridden since the summer, so a little achy!
