Plenty of 'out time' over the weekend with not a great deal to show for it, at least we are bathed in sunshine at the moment. Yesterdays efforts produced 2 patch year ticks with a Teal on the Houb and Tufted Duck scoped on Vats-houll. Other than that the Collared Dove has attracted a mate and 2 Chaffinch remain. Today wasn't much different on patch, the Collared Doves and Chaffinches remain and a Chiffchaff was possibly new, also a few more Wheatears were around though very unapproachable. A scan of the sea produced the Black-throated Diver again off Challister Ness, so a speculative punt on the ness for maybe a photo only produced 3 more Wheatear.
