It appears after reading Angies Blog that they did indeed see a couple of Choughs. What I thought had flown overhead was a couple of the Dark Riders from Lord Of The Rings (Ravens) but no......
I shall try again for a better view before I claim a life tick.


  1. i didnt realise Abott that you hadnt seen the Choughs. I imagine your not very "chuffed" :-)

  2. I did see the two dark shapes sweeping away below the bank but no one told me they were Choughs. No of course I am chuffed to little meat-balls that all my fellow twitchers saw it. That is what makes this game so exciting the anticipation of seeing a mega rarity then being supremely Buddha like in the knowledge that the rarity you just dipped on is still available for a tick. The supreme joy of walking across the heath and heather further adds to the enjoyment of the dipper who can now do it all over again….I suppose the more one dips the greater the pleasures to look forward to…which lets face it ..cannot be all bad.
