Half an hour at Boulmer with Bunty in the gloomy afternoon.

The pond had loads on it because the tide was full. There were 111+ Curlew, a dozen Mallard with a single drake Teal, the DB Brent, 2 Snipe, 3 Dunlin and a good mix of Lapwing, Oystercatcher, Starlings, Turnstones and Gulls. A quick scan with the bins over the sea revealed just about nothing ( a few Eiders).

I've taken advantage of the dark, poor weather to catch up on some paperwork. The notes are now done for the Whie billed Diver. Just a few county notes to do now like the 2 Balearic Shearwaters and the 2 Sabines Gulls.

Merry Christmas to all...

Serious question for a change but how does Bunty affect your birding or does she not?

We fancied a dog a while back and the effect on birds crossed my mind - presumably the fact you see lots of great birds means they don't mind the dog?
