Whilst watching the Icy, Andy McLevy mentioned that a Common Rosefinch, my other boggy bird, had been seen at the entrance to Druridge Pools. So off I went . . . As I got out of the car I could hear the Rosefinch singing and before long it had popped up on top of a Hawthorne. It always had branches in front of it, so again all I managed were record shots.
What a cracking mornings birding!!!! But I better get on with my jobs or I'll be getting wrong off the wife when she gets in.
