The weeather has been awful this week, so we've spent 2 days at our standby location. We've encountered nearly 40 bird species, and today there were 3 Commas and plenty of Common Darters & Migrant Hawkers. Highlights were yesterday's 9 Pink-footed Geese, a Barnacle Goose & a juvenile male Marsh Harrier. We also saw a Heron which is relatively scarce at this location.
