And Another Good Half Days Birding

First up this morning was another trip to Tewinbury. Unfortunately no Jack Snipe again. I stayed from 07:00 to 08:00 a few Reed Buntings and a pair of Little Grebes was the best I could manage. I decided to head for home with a quick call in at Tyttenhanger. Redshank, Lapwing, Egyptian Goose the best on offer here. While wandering around Tyttenhanger Paul phoned and suggested we go over to Otmoor. So I met up with Paul and off we went to Otmoor. Just outside Otmoor at Beckley we saw 2 Grey Partridge on the grass verge. At Otmoor we connected with both our target birds. A drake Garganey from the first viewing screen and a Ferruginous Duck from the second.
