Early Chiffchaff

Thursday, February 05, 2009

Found a Chiffchaff on the North Bank this morning. Was checking out some ducks flying over (Mallard of course) when an LBJ flew across the river and landed in a Buddleia. Tried to get some photos, but due to the light conditions and the rain (note - rain - not snow) I just ended up with some dark shots of a dead bush. With a Chiffchaff shaped smudge in the middle. Even by my standards they are utter shite.

Bizarrely, a Hoopoe was reported in Frensham yesterday (via Surrey Birders). WTF? A Hoopoe in the middle of winter - how lost must that bird be?
