7th February 2016 - Thursley Common

We were hoping to head to see some geese including a possible escaped RBG but I was decidedly well into a bad phase of illness by the weekend so we decided to try and have a short walk around Thursley instead.  Five minutes after we arrived there was a flash hail storm despite it being beautifully sunny and after a 'thunk' behind me, I turned around to see Stuart, scope and all, firmly fallen off the boardwalk and knee deep in water.  Donkey.

The common was pretty quiet, but we caught up with two Great Grey Shrike, as well as a split second view of a Dartford Warbler.  

Awful photo of GGS
Also, Ollie 'I hate dogs' Simms, had a beautiful moment with one...
