Maxey, 22.3.06

15.3.07 6.50-7.25am Maxey pits 7-7.30am
Sleeting and v cold.
These are just the birds I counted:
Teal, 47 counted,
Ringed Plover, 5,
Little Ringed Plover, 2,
Green Sandpiper, 4,
Snipe, 1,
Redshank, 3,
Chiffchaff, 2 singing
Green Woodpecker, 1 calling.

The other highlight was performing an uncontrolled 180° skid at the roundabout south of the Maxey Cut. Not pleasant, but at least the car behind was aware and used her brakes in time.
