1st Frustration - A kingfisher that just wouldn't settle in the sunshine but preferred shadows.
2nd Frustration - a Goldfinch - lovely bird but I was hoping for a Siskin on the Alder cones
I could go on with very flighty Green Sandpiper and Water Rail hiding under Privet bush but finally:-
Thought I would check Huntinglands for Golden Plover of which none so started counting Lapwing as there appeared more than the 277 when I last counted them. Managed to get through over half before they all took flight and when I looked down at my tally counter it had stopped on, would you believe 277.
