Its been a long time since Ive been able to add to my year list so it was great to add 2 yesterday. Highlight of the day though was meeting Kevs baby boy for the 1st time. A very handsome little man.

Anyway. Off we went and parked up at Rest Bay. Then a quick walk along the coastal path. Bud enjoyed playing with the other dogs in particular the other 2 Vizslas. He was noticeably more muscular but they were bitches.

Lifer number 14 was sat up on the fence being harassed by Wagtails and Pipits.

220. Red-backed Shrike Lifer #14

A further short walk round to Sker and the Long-tailed Duck was still on the flooded area. Good to catch up with Bernie too.

221. Long-tailed Duck

Next it was off to the Knapp. Not for a year tick but to hopefully see a species we both like. On arrival we were told it had flown off an hour and a half ago so we went for a walk along the beach with Bud. On returning the Bunting stood out like a sore thumb. Ive been lucky enough to see Snow Buntings on 3 separate occasions this year. Great little birds.
