Naff all else to do but take a stroll in the park
Met up with Mr Fisher at a reasonable hour this morning. If anyone was going to manage to get anything out of this increasingly dire time of year, it would be Stuart, so I needed to be there, just in case like!
We saw and heard bugger all!. OK, not quite true, but near enough. A Hobby over the Shoulder of Mutton, a couple of Little Egrets down by the roding, but for the most part it was a lesson in moths, butterflies and damsels - and there weren't many of those either.
It did pick up slightly after Stuart headed back to Leytonshire; a couple of Bullfinch sighed through the OSW, caught up with the egret again, a couple of Kingfisher, loadsa chiffies in the old sewage works, a Grass Snake and some Hornet. Since nothing else was happening elsewhere, pretty much a result!
