An expensive slip ?
The forecast SE'rly winds arrived but unfortunately they didn't produce any birds, unless you want to count Redwings ? A very eager John Laurie arrived at 9am and with the help of Bella we set out to try and relocate yesterdays Spotted Crake. Some 90 minutes passed by with no luck and to compound the misery further whist crossing a ditch i slipped and fell side first into the waters below. Not only did i get my leg very wet my camera also went for a dip, well more of a dunk, end result the camera was full of water and looks totally fucked. Time for the insurance policy to come into its own i think, and for the cheque book to resurface ! Fortunately as earlier stated there were no birds to see and furthermore none to photograph. Better luck tomorrow i hope !
