Another Twitch!

Not bad for a non Twitcher but two in one week! Well I simply couldn't resist the lure of 17 Bewick's Swans.
Word came through while working at Brandon Marsh this afternoon of these magnificent birds not 5 miles away from our location, why couldn't they be more thoughtful and drop in here I thought?
Anyway after work and a quick coffee, so quick I left half, several of the Conservation Team went a twitching. In convoy and following our beloved leader, we eventually caught up with 14 of the 17 reported birds feeding in a field at Bretford. Magnificent they looked too in the snowy backdrop and once again well worth the effort of another twitch!
