Sorry Dave!


Apologies to Dave Hardaker who sent me this cracking picture of the Snow Bunting that was hanging around Hall Road last month.
I only picked up the email last night due to my obvious ineptitude when it comes to any form of technology, old or new.
I was also outfoxed by the bird twice, which was annoying.
“Juv. Snow Bunting, probably female, Burbo Bank car park Crosby, this morning (14.1.15). Very confiding on grassy verge on the right before the 5 bar metal gate that leads on to the revetment”, Dave explained. “Photographed from the car”.
Better late than never!
