Whitening Strikes Twice

Dan here.

In the wake of what the Scots have dubbed Hurricane Bawbag the parish was looking a bit bleak and blasted today.

However, a great egret was looking grand in the same spot as the autumn find-- near the legendary pylons where Heaton Marsh and Colloway Marsh collide.

Couldn't find much else of interest, bar an adult Med.  Sadly there seems to have been a major clear-out of geese.

Freeman's Pools was hosting six goldeneyes and eleven gadwall. A peregrine falcon and two kestrels were noted.


The dead tree that’s been standing for donkeys years succumbed to the wild weather.
