Search for the Great White

Wednesday 30th January 2013 After a game of musical dustbins at home first thing, I ventured to the Dosthill area of the Tame valley in search of the Great White.It was a very pleasant morning despite the gusty wind.Plenty of Skylarks and Reed Buntings around the Water Skiing pits but the best bird was a Jack Snipe which typically got up from under my feet before dropping down in the long grass 20 metres ahead. The 2 Long tailed Ducks were in their favoured area, while a Peregrine was playing havoc with Woodpigeons, Corvids and everything else over the fields behind the Malthouse pub. As for the Great White Egret not a sniff but it may well be hunkered down in some ditch out of the wind. I'll tell of the story about the bins another time maybe.
