Saturday 04.02 NHGP
Another very chilly day ( -2 ) with promise of snow tonight. A call from JW yesterday told of Dunlin on the river from the bucket so today took David to Brooklands car park where we met Phil S who had located the Dunlin but needed the scope to check the ID. He also informed us of a Pintail on Brooklands which was immediatly located and later a Goosander on there as well and then reasonable views of the Dunlin. We then proceeded round Holborough marshes with nothing new but lots of Snipe on the river. The Winter conditions have pepped up the NHGP birds lets hope for some more goodies.
