Time in the field

Pintail, drake with rather short tail at Gordon's Mere, Woodwalton Fen

I added a few birds to my local year list today, namely: Hen Harrier (ringtail at Woodwalton Fen), Marsh Harrier (young male also there), Red Kite at Holme Fen, Short-eared Owl near Crowland by the Deeping High Bank and White-fronted Goose (16 European-race birds [9 ad, 7 juv] found by Paul Taylor at Deeping Lakes; see above).

This takes my PBC 2009 total to 105.
