Tetney 24/03/17

Out with DW.
A sunny day with a cold F5 NE that eased slightly to F4 in the afternoon. Temp 7°C.
The cold NE wind meant nothing was moving through the skies.

The humber was so quiet we didn't even manage a single bird of note either on it or over it.

Bird of prey highlights: 4 Common Buzzard, 2 Merlin, Short-eared Owl and 2 Barn Owl.

In the bushes were just a single Chiffchaff and Goldcrest.

Other highlights: 30 Golden Plover, 6 Grey Partridge, the commuting 2CY Glaucous Gull that flew past on the way to Tetney Haven, at least one Rock Pipit hanging on and 45 Linnet.

Other wildlife: 2 Grey Seal and 4 Brown Hares. Corpses of Badger and Weasel were found.

No patch year ticks today.






 We came across a Victorian bottle dump today though most bottles seen were broken. Looking on the internet the majority aren't worth a great amount though some rare bottles can be worth at least a few hundred pounds if found intact. It was quite fascinating to see bottles on the patch that date back to the 1800's.
