150 up - One Turtle Dove and two Partridges.....

A useful encounter with a Turtle Dove in the Upton Magna area brought up the County 150 mark. Time will tell but I think last years tally is likely to be out of reach unless something spectacular happens. I also have to get to grips with Sanderling, Knot and Black Tern!!!

I'll have to rewrite the Christmas song for the sake of accuracy!

Here's the Turtle Dove dropping in.....











Plus the Partridges (Red legged)....






There wasn't a pear tree in sight!








Strictly for record purposes or very clever artistic use of reeds to depict (hide) a skulkng Reed Warbler at Priorslee....








Meanwhile at Venus Pool, a Green Woodpecker getting to grips with the ant problem? Every garden should have one!






The dutiful pair of Oystercatchers at VP are still sitting and instantly scramble to see off Corvids!!
