On Sunday for the first time ever I went to Upton on my own! Tina was going to the Theatre in Bromsgrove with her Mom and I was meeting afterwards for some fittle!
I decided just to go to the Moors as the weather was horrible, keeps the walking in that muck down to a minimum. Tried the short path to the two hides first and decided to go upstairs.
The feedeers here were quite busy with; Bullfinch, Greenfich, Chaffinch, Blue Tit, Great Tit, Reed Bunting, Robin, Mallard, Moorhen and a Rat!
So from the East hide the Snipe ca40 were displaying really well, but no sign of a Jack Snipe:
In future if we are coming to Upton, I'll let people know, because when we come the Bittern stays in hiding!
