Wife & I walkabout

           Had a walk around Cromwell NR and Claremount today with Lisa now
           the wind has died down a bit, first bird I seen was a Greater Spotted
           Woodpecker in the car park area and then a Jay and a Heron flyover,
           next we walked up to the weir where there was a female Goosander
           and 2 Canada Geese, 2 Mallard and the bad news is there was also a
           Mink loitering about, then walked around to the viewing area which
           was very quiet but a couple of Bullfinch and a Jay saved it, lots of
           Warblers and Chiff Chaffs singing in the Reed Lagoon and one Tree
           Creeper, walked back by the river and seen 6 Goosander 1 male
           5 female and then 3 Blackcaps up in the trees but too dark for a photo.

           Claremount had a Sparrowhawk flyover, Greenfinch, Chaffinch,Goldfinch,
           Dunnocks, Collared Doves, lots of Jackdaws and Magpies and a Tawny Owl
           in a mates garden box that he put up for them with hope and it payed off.
       
           Wish I'd of got a lot more shots but my eyes were playing up and watering
           all the time so found it hard focusing everything was a blur, bumped in to
           Cath G and we got an invite up to the Isle of Mull, can't wait but just trying
           to get the time.
