I was going to spend a good twenty minutes in the park this morning so set up my camera looking forward to getting shots of some insects perhaps, only to be shat on by a Collared Dove! It's waste product went down the front of my t-shirt and on my camera. I beat a retreat to the flat and changed my t-shirt and cleaned my camera. I somehow got the message..... A Coal Tit was singing in the pine near the lower entrance.
Yesterday at the station I was surprised to record only one butterfly - a Brimstone - patrolling the disused platform Also yesterday, a Jackdaw flew over Brigstock Road.
