As promised some starling pictures from last night! Some more at the bottom of the page! I am hoping some waxwings turn up here in the near future there are turning up in various places in Gloucestershire. These irruptions happening every few years and I have been lucky seeing them 3 or 4 times over the last 12 years. Talking of birds we did our monthly survey out by the river on Thursday. It was wet and blowing a gale- not conducive for seeing many birds. A peregrine shot past us, and we saw 36 snipe and amazingly 5 jack snipes!
Felt really proud of the Mighty Hatters today. A silly mistake at the start meant we were always playing catch up. Brilliant fight back almost saw us get something against the millionaires from Chelsea– we hit the bar twice near the end to add to the agony!
