Pocket Pechora

A cold Northerly breeze forced everyone to wrap up. Highlights yesterday were mainly left from the previous day with the Pechora, 2 Common Rosefinch and Richard's Pipit all still present......and all in my garden at Burkle......where the Pechora was mist-netted and ringed. A Barred Warbler was also caught by Jack in North Grind whilst a few Jack Snipe (6+), 2 Great Northern Divers and a Slavonian Grebe were non-passerine highlights. Single Blackbird, Redwing and Song Thrush were hopefully fore-runners of larger numbers to come very soon!

In the evening, had to watch Celtic being held to a disappointing 1-1 draw at home by Rapid Vienna in the Europa League, then went to the hall for an hour of disappointing darts.

Other news: It was International Day at school so kids all had to dress up in colours of different countries. Most did exactly that but Raven (as is her wont) went the whole hog and ran to school in a flamenco dress, clacking her castanets as she went!!

Lubo seems off his food but did eat his dinner eventually and has not touched his breakfast this morning - he seems okay otherwise though!
