Had a day of making errors.Abandoned my walk down the Farborough Bank and headed for Rainbow as the GN Diver had been seen there.It was not till I got to Rainbow,having seen nothing of interest at all,when Bob Hazell called to tell me a Green-winged Teal was showing well in front of the Toft hide.Well it might have been on Mars as far as I was concerned because to walk from Rainbow corner to Toft is a major expedition for me taking weeks of planning!!!!
Of course when I got there it had moved across Toft to the far bank.Lovelly!!!! Only shots I got were of the Goosanders on the Pectoral beach.
This morning,having heard of the bad weather coming later,I nipped over to Marsh Lane for a quick look.I didn't see anything special from the hides except a great number of Common Snipe but the Old Road was very lively with numerous Yellowhammers,Chaffinches,Siskin,Linnets etc. and the odd Redwing and a lone Tree Sparrow.No pics a bit dull.
