Birds, Leps, Observations & Generalities - the images and ramblings of Mark Skevington. Sometimes.

Thursday, 17 November 2011


Seems everything is against me seeing new birds these days. Local Snow Bunts would have been an overdue county tick, and that bloody Greater Legs up in Northumbs is grating a little now. I would really like to see this superb bird but I have had zero chance of taking time out of work this week and face another heavily constrained weekend. Next week is not looking any more likely for a day off either. Arse.

In lieu of doing or seeing anything exciting, and with no new photos to share, I had a quick trawl through the hopelessy archived archives looking for old photos to give a new airing. I found a few, and inadvertently found a new sawfly in the process (one that is very obvious some nine years later with improved online resources).
