Barton-under-Needwood on 2nd December, 2008

Attracted by the reports of the Cattle Egret at Barton-under-Needwood, I took a break from decorating and had a ride out there in the afternoon. I had not been there for more than about 15 minutes when it flew in. I went again the next day to see if I could get some better photos, but at 15:00 I was told that it had not been seen all day. However, I did find myself interviewed by Radio Derby while I was there.

On the way back home, I dropped into Croxall Lakes. Although there was nothing of major interest there, as far as I could see, there were plenty of birds to keep me occupied. At one point, a busy flock of Redwing made their way through, feasting on the abundant crop of berries beside the railway. I managed a photo of one of the few (2?) Fieldfares that were about in the fading light.

I'm pleased to report that the anonymous spam problem seems to be solvable without using word verification. I'm now just using the 'Registered Users - includes OpenID' option in Blogger settings, and I'm not getting any spam - touch wood! I've also not received any contact from people saying that they are no longer able to make comments.
