Dinton Pastures

Dinton Pastures ~ 3rd March 2012~

Well, here goes. My first blog post ever!

Today I went to Dinton Pastures, our aim to see the Lesser Spotted Woodpecker hanging around the Teal Hide, and a Bittern at Lea Farm. I didn't see either bird.

We covered the whole of Dinton in just under 3 hours. It started out raining but the sun made an apperance later on. I managed some fleeting views of Kingfisher, but still no pictures.

At the Tern Hide, there were at least 10 Snipe feeding on the scrape to the left of the 'No Fishing' sign, there were also Shoveler, Teal, Cormorants, a Little Egret and a Pochard. On and around the feeders were 5 female Phesants, Reed Bunting, Chaffinch, Dunnock, Goldfinch, Long - Tailed Tits, Blue + Great Tits and last but not least, a Moorhen underneath the feeders.

Unfortunately, none of the other hides had anything worth mentioning here. However, it was a great morning and I met lots of nice people, some of whom I already knew, saw lots of birds and hope to go back soon.
