After waking at about 02.00 this morning and finally giving up and getting up at 05.00, I messed about with the new Virgin media TiVo box I set off out to join Jim Graham at Cropston Reservoir in the pouring rain. We were there to help (or hinder) Julie Meyer with her Treasure Hunt. Jim had a clue taped to the leg of his tripod.
Julie almost gave up from her quizing of us but at the last minute spied the clue taped to the tripod. What’s the War Of The Worlds reference? listen in from 27 minutes
The weather was atrocious but there were good numbers of Hirundines around with one Arctic Tern among the Commons, on the dam were Common Sandpiper, Little Ringed Plover and a superb male Yellow Wagtail.
