Gardens and birding just don't mix!
Early start this morning for the 1st ringing session of the year but a frosty night produced frozen nets at both our sites. Spent the day in the garden putting up pur new fruit cage unaware that my mobile was going crazy to tell me of the possible pacific diver at the reserve. By the time I found out about it there wasn't enough time to get there so I hope the bird is still around tomorrow.
Always keep your phone with you!!
