A trip down to the old concrete basin to have a chat with the wildlife warden Hanna about the Farmoor Open Day this Saturday 20th when Lew and Dai will be taking birders across the reservoir and I will be displaying oos stuff along with the artwork of the Lewington Brothers - do your best to get there and support us it promises to be a marvellous day out (look in the forthcoming events section)
Met Tezzer in the carpark which was a bit of luck as walking up the entrance footpath I stumbled and it was a bit of luck that Tezzer arrested my headlong flight towards the tarmac as I could have made an awful mess of both the footpath and myself.
After sampling the cafe cuisine, and very nice too, I then left for pit 60 meeting just outside the hide Jim who told me he had seen both Peregrine and Hobby. I didn't get either but spent an enjoyable hour watching LR Plover,Lapwing, Redshank, Oystercatcher and others. Hope you can make it to Farmoor Saturday and if you can please call in and say hello. Oh yes!In Focus will be there.
