November 14th 2008

Last nights conditions were awful but still managed to trap a Mottled Umber.
I had no stamina for fighting the gale force winds (gusts of over 40mph recorded locally today) with me bike this morning so I was grateful to JJ for a lift to the pond with Alfie. The strong winds made viewing difficult and we struggled to locate the male Green-winged Teal in toft bay and apart from 400 Lapwing and 2m & 1f Goosander there was little else on offer.
We attempted a look at Daventry Country Park, Northamptonshire for a possible Baltic Gull but the heavy rain never let up so we called it a day.

Hi Richard, glad you are feeling a little better. Did you connect with the probable Baltic? I was there from 0900 until 1130 (until the rain started!) and only managed a Yellow Legged. See you soon.

Hi Kevin,
Not fully recovered but out and about. Rain was that heavy we did not get out of the car park.
