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....

A pleasant walk in the sunshine to Ibsley Water this afternoon turned into a freezing cold and wet walk home - but one species to the good! Three Swallows (126) were in a sense the highlight, but also a 1st summer Little Gull, a Black-tailed Godwit, 3 Ruff (2 of them showing superbly right by the hide), 60 Sand Martins and a Green Sand to pad the list. Now feeling like a drowned rat.
