March 27 2011

I couldn't resist it when the news came, its been a year or two since I saw one. So I twitched the American Wigeon, no pictures as I couldn't be arsed to carry the camera up to the hide, and after 30 minutes (or so) with the bird, my jet lag told me it was time to quit and I headed for home

Watching the news this morning, I think that if it had happened when we were there, we would have been just part of the statistics. Very sad!
