Jason and the Garganauts

17 May

Today I gone up Titchfield Haven and I seen a garganey. A garganey is a duck. Other ducks include mallards and other mallards. A garganey is not a mallard. But it is a duck.

I also got a decent bit of sign spotting done. Sign spotting is brilliant. It’s took me 383 days to get to 129 species in conventional bird seening. With sign spotting I am on 90 species after just 7 days. And I don’t even need to be able to identify the birds myself, because it says their names right next to the pictures.
