📖 #25 ~ Onboard
☔️10C Thursday 12th April 2018 ~ Still feeling the effects of my recent Flu and some long birding days recently I've decided to stay onboard for a few days, skipping Brandon Marsh today, in an attempt to finally shake the bug. However, I did take a brief stroll around Napton Reservoir for some fresh air on Wednesday afternoon in what was once again very depressing conditions, drizzle, mist and low cloud!
Even many of the 100s of Swallows on site decided to give up for the day, taking to the nearby trees for a spot of preening. This also included a few House and Sand Martins. The only brightness to an otherwise grey day was a couple of Yellow Wagtails and the only two birds in any mood for singing were a single Chiffchaff and Blackcap.
