Not a lot to write home about, let alone Blog. I could comment on the apparent increase in the numbers of Thrushes, Robins, Starlings, Meadow pipits etc, etc on local walks but its similar to last year and the year before that. Not that its not good to see these birds but something a little different now and again would be much appreciated. Having said that, when a pair of Russian Whitefronts turn up at Alvecote I did contrive to avoid them despite numerous visits. I did, however,see the Smew today AND 3 Great white Egrets. I also enjoyed the Swan fest. at Brandon Marsh yesterday.
