Sparv 1 clippy clop -1

whenever I come across a Jack Snipe now I am transported back to the mire near Karigasniemi where we have listened to displaying birds over the last two summers---it was thus with some degree of distaste that I watched as this male Sparrowhawk dropped over the top of the hide and landed on an unseen vistim which I guessed might have been a Jack---indeed when the Sparv got up I managed a quick shot or two which confirmed my suspicions that a cliddy opp had met its end---Blackbirds and tits somehow seem to have less importance than a Jack Snipe--


following the Sparv attack I managed to locate this second Jack sleeping in the fairly open reed---fairly open being a very rough term when it comes to locating one of these crytic skulkers


this white colour ringed Med Gull at Chapel was ringed as a second summer in a Belgian colony on April 17th 2006 before spending the first half of June in Denmark then coming over to Chapel for its autumn break---it did not seem to think much to my brown bread maybe prefering bacon or chocolates
