After Work

Well 1400 1m cubed bags emptied of heather later and i'm returning home for good. No more working in Derbyshire and Snakes Pass.  So on my way home i decide to stop in at Sizergh Castle for the Hawfinch that had been showing well on and off all week. Today they did show well at times but as it was dinner time there were people coming and going too frequently so the Hawfinch would show on the ground for barely seconds. Also silly people kept parking in the bay they were feeding in.....Cant you F*cking see im taking pictures!!!!! Anyway two birds did eventually come down to the ground but for a split second, enough time to get pics of both Male and female. Given an early start and quite a sunny day you could nail these birds..
Whilst waiting for the Hawfinch to venture onto the ground, some more practice on the commoner stuff...








Nipped into Soddy Gap but nothing new in except i finally caught up with the Drake Pintail.
Also 15 Shelduck. A record for the site, 1 Goosander, 1 Long tailed duck still, and 2 Returning Mute Swans.
