Not a patch tick

Tuesday, November 17, 2009

My normal sojourn this week is at the time when the Thames is high.  As I have stated ad nauseum this is not good for birds.  Actually it's probably ok for the birds as it happens, it's just a bit rubbish for a big bloke that wants to see some of them.  So I'm getting a bit desperate for some action.  So desperate in fact that when I found three Chaffinches feeding in a tree today, I was terribly excited because I thought that they may have been a patch year tick.

They were not.
