You aint seen me, right?
"You won't tell on me, will you?"
Of course not!
Today I saw a Ruddy Duck, amongst a few other ruddy ducks which were Tufties. I will not say where I saw this RD, not because I do or don't support the cull of these rather smart little birds for their promiscuous misdemeanours with "our" (Spanish) birds. It is not my place, not my patch, to make that decision.
I would have gone earlier in the year, but the reports were not good, but today I thought what the hell. The hell was wading through goose shit in my smart shoes to find it.
PLL #194. One day left before I can rush around town to my heart's content and I am beginning to enjoy it again, but that could be purely down to the fact I haven't dipped on the last three birds. Tomorrow I can see that all changing as I finally head to Richmond to conjure up a Dartford Warbler, which is unlikely to be there.
