The Tortoise and the Hare

OK, so it doesn't quite equal the BTO boys and girls' Goshawk (another mammoth tick and potential blocker!) and they may lead by 19 species, but this is a marathon, not a sprint! 

This morning on my way in to work, I walked through Sandy Heath Quarry where some small pools have formed. I thought this may be a reasonable area to pick up Snipe, but instead, a Green Sandpiper was feeding around the edge of the only unfrozen pool. 65 now...


  1. Look on the bright side Darren - you're only 9 off my personal Lakes yearlist now ;)

  2. Oh and I hope you got a picture of that tortoise...
