Look on the bright side, you might get a game if you take your boots down - I know how you are well known for sporting prowess!

Had a kingfisher flying down Warkworth beach today (south)

Coot's eh!! Come and visit Somerset ... Cheddar Resevoir, regularly have 2,3-4,000 coots overwintering there.... one of them has a strong Northumbrian accent, shall I send it back? http://pub13.bravenet.com/forum/1065729998/show/733958

Coots I wish, I had just 1 last year. Such rareties!

Boulmer Birder said...

We do get Coots in Northumberland, but not at Boulmer. Nothing fresh to swim on...

BR - Send it in via Boulmer please...get it to bring a Pochard too.

Boulmer Birder said...

No bother Mark. If it arrives I'll send it recorded delivery ( or pigeon post?)

A Coot is a rarity at St Mary's so don't worry Stu your not the only one who misses out.
