A busy few days with not a lot to report, or at least not much that I have seen. I understand there were at least 10 curlew sandpiper at Farlington yesterday, roosting on the Lake at high tide, which is good news for the waterfowl count this weekend. I will give a full rundown of the figures later in the weekend.
I was at Hookheath yesterday, checking the fences in preparation for the arrival of some cattle (at last!) today, the fences were fine, unfortunately I was there during the afternoon deluge, so I got soaked through. The rain meant I saw very little wildlife, a roe deer and several marsh tit were the best.
I have been asked again why the “108ft blog” and I know I said ages ago that I would explain, and I will before I move on. The blog will carry, I might even do a few sneaky posts myself if I am over in south-east Hampshire.
