Unreal birds...

Another day off on holiday, getting the annual leave used up before the end of the month....

No real birding as such today but I still managed to add two new species to the patch list. Firstly, as I left Howick on my way to Alnwick, a pair of Red legged Partridges ran over our lane. Although the worst of 'plastic', being cage hoppers for shooting purposes, everyone else adds them to the list, so 'When in Rome' I say....This is the first record here since 2012.

On the subject of introductions, 2 Canada Geese flew over south honking as they went, making it to No100 on the patch list.

As the day is drizzly and overcast, here is a cheery pic from yesterday's sunny interlude...

A concrete sink at our door was planted with bulbs in the autumn and look at it now...
99. Red-legged Partridge
100. Canada Goose
