The Magnificent 7 except theres 9,










Thick fog and heavy drizzle this p.m. up Soil Hill but with work looming its ugly head tomorrow a man has to do what a man has to do so up I went. Strangely there were no birders up there after a visit by several this morning, or if there were I probably wouldnt have seen them in the fog.
First birds seen were 9 Goldies lift off and move to the other side of the hill.  Almost immediately I was amongst the Snow Bunts on the SE flat area sticking around the waters edges with 7 all close together, the other 2 turned up later in the clover field right in the SE corner. These 2 have got to be from another location as they rarely mix apart from roost time.
Managed to get a few shots in the fog but after being knelt in the mud for 30 minutes my knees started to sieze up.   Apologies for more photos but I can,t resist them and they are the first half decent ones this year.
