On January 1 of the last couple of years, I have started my birding at Baston Fen, Lincs. For 2007 I was plotting the same, but needed to check it out to see what was there. Floods was the answer when I arrived this morning (30.12.06) and it was not looking at all promising. However, just when I was thinking it would be a waste of time, a spring of Teal came whizzing past, with a Knot in tow. Then they whizzed off. Luckily, a few minutes later the Knot returned, landed and sat around doing not much. It allowed a reasonably close approach and I got some rather pleasing shots. Enjoy!
