London birders are more than a little excited by a Dusky Warbler in Walthamstow, and rightly so. However, when they were all charging over to Eastenders land, I dutifully went for another foray into the patch and I found this!
Ok, it's a feeder and there are manifestly no birds on it. But had I digimonned this image thirty seconds earlier there would have been a Coal Tit in the picture - and that is a patch tick!
And there was two of them. Patch tick and patch second! Result!
50 for the year (and still no Dunnock) and 76 for the patch.
Ker-bloody-ching! Dusky Warbler? Pah!
