It dosn’t take alot to get us excited watching the local patch,but a call from David this morning had me abandoning the hoovering-I think I left the house with the hoover still running,such was my desire to see the twites which David had re-found.

All the Marston maffia were on site plus twitchers Sue and Trish from Spalding.Anyway,some of us saw the twites,5 birds at least.A large mixed finch flock was near the far corner of the leek field.The twites occasionally break away and perch in trees down the main track.Also attracting great interest were several cetti’s warblers and 10 common buzzards circling together,overhead.

83 species seen this year on the patch now.
