Barnes last weekend was so good it's taken me a week to get round to writing about it. A Shelduck, a Pintail, two Stonechats, two Pergerines. Phwoar.
Most of the rest of my time there was spent chasing redpolls around 'wildside' — far less exciting than it sounds and, predictably, none that I saw were the reported (I use that word with scorn) Mealy Redpolls.
Any other exciting news from the week past? Er, no. I did spend several days without a bathroom light. First because the fuse went and, this being rented accommodation, it required someone from the property management to come and flick the fuse switch(!) and then because a day later the bulb went. It's now been replaced though I think I preferred showering in the dark.
But by far the highlight of the week. This steak and kidney filled deliciousness.
Vegetarians look away now.
