February 24th 2011

Well i just had to go back up to Lincs for the Owls the weather forecast was good so an earlyish start had me up at Barton-upon-Humber for about 9:30 picking up Rich Dawkins on the way 1st stop was to the local pits where 2 Long-tailed Ducks were still present also good numbers of Tree Sparrow in the hedgerow,nxt stop to South Ferriby for the Juv Rough-legged Buzzard which showed well but a little to distant for anything more than record shots!! We reached Worlaby Carrs about 12ish & were joined by Mandy West,Darren Chapman & about 50 other photographers from all parts of the country! The birds must have been enjoying baskin in the sun as apart from a cpl of distant flight views the action didn't hot up till about 4:20 when old faithfull came & showed off!! Ive never seen so many happy & relieved faces in a long time (Photos below)
