Post 115: 16 February 2107, 1,000 Mile Challenge Walk
In order to continue my 1,000 Mile Challenge, I decided to do my ‘bread and butter’ walk through my village to include a short diversion to where the Pine Bunting blown in from Siberia was last seen. All I found was one twitcher who had come up from London to visit friends in Sheffield. I do hope his friends weren’t put out that he had then carried onto York a good hour and a half away to try and spot this tiny little Pine Bunting.
Not having the patience of twitchers, I soon carried on my walking and spotted loads of birds in the hedgerows hereabouts – but not the Pine Bunting. A delightful Robin seemed very happy singing its head off.
And a chaffinch tried desperately to hide itself in the bushes.
There is always tomorrow! And Spring seems ever closer.
