In reply to gaynorsl:
The Phalarope and Dotterel certainly good ticks for anybody. The 11 Cranes make our single Crane yesterday on a local reservoir seem a bit tame.It got us quite happy though as they a a good tick up in the Dales.
Birding is for everyone no matter how good or bad we are at it,enjoy it while you can
They returned- like a gang of Fu Manchus No get together last year because of COVID and this year there were five guys - and two birding wives: The birding was hard with wind in the wrong direction and we had to make do with a Pectoral Sandpiper on Frampton Reservoir then Grey Phalarope and a close encounter with Purple Sandpiper and Snow Bunting on the Norfolk coast: They will return.........
For advice about Birding, Identification,field guides, binoculars, scopes, tripods, etc - put 'Birding Tips' into the search box
I'm glad your little group managed to meet up again Seymour Because we all live on the Western edge of the Yorkshire Dales our little Raptor group has managed to stay in contact more than some others. I have found recently that because my eyes are deteriorating I am relying more on there help but as we go back quite a long way they are quite happy with the arrangement. Are the birding wives a new addition? Chris has always been welcomed by the group as a birder not just as my chauffeur.
