Mid-summer blues I am afraid hence no real activity here. Wader numbers are starting to build up now with large numbers of knot and godwits. There has been a cracking summer plumage curlew sand for the last week and there was 6 spotshank this afternoon. It should only be a matter of time now before and good wader, probably a pec, turns up.
14 crossbills over the garden on Sunday was a nice surprise although there has been a small movement along the coast in the last couple of weeks.
After only just getting back from our Colorado trip, our next one is already planned. This one is a bit bigger - we are off to NE India in February next year. Very different to our last few trips, all the birds, culture and scenery will be very different. The trip still has a few things to confirm but we will be going to the famous Eagles Nest and into the foothills of the Himalayas. It will be a bit of an adventure especially as we are going with Dave and Mandy who are infamous for having something go wrong!!
