Anyhow, I headed down to the Canal, no Coot coming to bread, so I headed down to Crosby Marina to freeze my Jacob's off! I didn't see the Grey Phalarope, but to be honest I wasn't looking too hard. I'm a half-arsed birder at the best of times. I was more interested in the Coot, loaf of bread in hand I headed down to the boating lake. A combination of Canada Geese, Black-headed Spitfires and some pesky dog walkers left my bonfire well and truly pissed on! Think that will be an early-morning job! However it was good to bump into Tony Duckels as he went to Phind the Phalarope!
Moxey (not at Ince), down with the kids!
Anyhow, Moxey was able to get out to Ince for an hour:
Blue Tit: 8 (7)
Great Tit: 3 (9)
Coal Tit: (1)
LT Tit: 3 (1)
Total: 18 (18)
That means in November we have ringed 504 birds between Crosby Hall and Ince. With The Woodhams now in opperation, we're hoping to build on this early promise!
