Yesterday Dave and I had the pleasure of trying to inspire some of tomorrow’s birders as we had agreed to lead a walk for the LRWT Wildlife Watch group. Before we met the group we tried to follow up reports of a ‘funny’ Redpoll with lots of white in the wing. At the usual spot we failed to locate any Redpoll let alone any funny ones.
There had been a very good Hoar Frost though.
The kids were a pretty good and enthusiastic lot who loved looking at birds through the telescope. I doubt their parents would be so enthusiastic about shelling out on a Kowa 883 though.
