Broomhill Birder

Hi everyone,

it’s been a very pleasant day to weather wise and company wise, I was joined by Steve Abbott today so we did  Broomhill Flash, Edderthorpe Flash, Wintersett and Angler Country Park. So we did have quite a full day, shame someone had to spoil it by trying to photograph a Lesser Scaup by actually walking down the slipway of a boathouse were the Lesser Scaup kept coming back to until it saw the plonker waiting for it, who needs field craft! Idiot.

 

Anyway here are the sightings from our labours!
