The weather has been so shit I've had nothing at all to blog about but I figured I had to write something! I've hardly been out birding due to work and weather related apathy. A Ring necked Duck has been present in the area since the beginning of the year but has been very elusive, it's finally been found on a tiny fishing pond at Arram and just goes to show how many rare birds must get missed because this pond is certainly not checked regularly by birders.
I also got some nice shots of the stunning drake Long tailed Duck at Hornsea, most of them look like this!!!
Basically it wouldn't come close enough for the lumix, a problem I've had with a lot of stuff so I've got myself a proper Kowa digiscoping adapter, i'm just waiting for it arriving in the post from Hungary!!!!
a few wet birds from a wet morning in Ladner BC
