Golden ducks

A cold ride mostly on bumpy tracks to the extreme south-west corner of my circle (do circles have corners?) produced the goods this morning. The redhead Smew was located with no difficulty in the middle of the southern pit at Longham Lakes, and shortly afterwads, the 1w drake Scaup gave itself up too. Didn't need Raven, Kingfisher, Little Egret or Bullfnch, but saw them anyway. Now on 80, same as Professor Yaffle, but with a lower percentage - given that Hampshire is obviously better for birding than Norfolk. As you long as you don't count the coast.

A mini-twitch in the evening to Blashford produced no sign of the regular Caspian Gull. Bastard.

When is Oscar going to see some birds, then?
