Going batty at West Hartford. 29/2/2012
Aquired the car late on yesterday afternoon so thought i'd have a couple of hours up the road. On arrival i had a single Short-eared Owl hunting in front of me but it drifted over the larger body of water and continued over the fields by the River Blyth. Initially on the pool were a couple of hundred gulls but as i approached they all lifted and numbers drifted of in different directions. I was left with 10 Oysterecatchers and a scattering of Teal around the fringes of the phragmites. Not much else to report initially but as the light started to go i had a second Shortie to my left in the vicinity of the farm on one of the fence posts. It lifted then dropped to the ground and that was the last i saw of it.
