Arrived at site about 9. 15 and there had been no sightings for a while so did a bit of standing about chatting and then took a call from Dad followed by one from CN at Pugneys. " Where are you!? Osprey coming in from sw!!" The conversation had a good few swear words in (mine) but had to let it go - major downer!
An hour or so later there were a couple of sighting of the Thayers and after a bit of hedge crawling and a short Wacky Races drive I finally connected with a surprisingly large crowd of c250 people enjoying reasonable views - phew!!!
On a separate note, i find it quite surprising that there have been no white-wingers picked up in the area with all the coverage. Saw one very pale herring a few times that AH first picked up y,day but otherwise nothing else unusual!?
