Lugged my digiscoping gear with me up the track this morning but nothing would give itself up for a decent shot, not even the Skylarks would play ball. The alba wagtail numbers have now reached an impressive 28, though despite carefull grilling, they all appeared to be Pied's in varying stages of plumage. Also along the track 8 Meadow Pipit and a single Reed Bunting
In the garden we were again visited briefly by single Siskin and had our first ever Goldfinch feeding on a Niger feeder, both record shots were laughingly poor and are not reproduced here! ( Although for some good pics of these try http://www.bordersbirds.blogspot.com/ ) Also had a pair of Long tailed Tit for only the second time this year.
Late afternoon tried to get some shots of the local Golden Plover flock (c100) but they were a bit jumpy as I drew up alongside the field, acouple of record shots were the best I could manage.
