Our suspicions of yesterday's Mystery Moth we founded and confirmed as an exceptionally early and a little worn
not surprisingly a 'first for the year' and which has been passed on to higher authority as of interest!
Yet another frustrating moment to start the day as by no means for the first time the raucous calls of Grey Heron
broke the dawn silence but remained unseen. Never in all the years we have persued the interest have we had to wait 74 days (and still counting) to clap eyes on such a common bird on our home patch! However, on the up side, the other early morning songsters are being lead each morning at abot 04:00 by an unknown number
Also in early morning evidence have been Waterfowl with the previously industrious pair of
having wrapped their hands in on the nest building front and most stragely not even leaving any evidence that they ever made the attempt?
Otherwise the small skein of c4
(we'll have to get a bit quicker with that Canon) continue to transit our airspace each morning.
again, as now occupying all watercourses, but then the best news (with fingers crossed) looks like the
aggressive as ever, have taken up residence on the Moors River an occasional nesting site.
shaping up to land at
Bournemouth International Airport
While ending with a little harmless mirth
Good Luck to Them!
