Another crisp, cold and dry morning with
FROSTY the ALPACA
in attendance, have often eaten Alpaca medium-rare, pan-fried
but never 'iced'.
In way of a change we decided to nip down to the
IBSLE WATER MEADOWS
in the hope of Bewick's Swan or even the White-fronted Goose
but that was a search in vain!
All to catch the eye was this rather unusually marked
of origin unknown before Chiefy in the
put everything to flight with
leading the way.
Oh for a
(Sea-Whiz x 4,500 rounds per minute)
not content with just passing over, he had to do a couple of curcuits
of the whole field system before Foxtrot Oscaring!!
The mixed Goose Flock completely spooked!
and time to beat a retreat down to Blashford.
Again, about the 3rd time this year, there was very little of interest
save for a couple of
feeding and occasionally scuffling in the margins on
while over the road just
GREAT SPOTTED WOODPECKER
(how do they know to take flight just as you get the camera on them??)
and a 'shaky'
were in the Oaks around the car park.
Short, and maybe not that sweet we returned to base.
