    Rare bird at the pumping Station ?

    Could anyone please tell me what the interest is at the pumping station in Crossens. Yesterday there were loads of cars and I believe people have already started arriving this morning, complete with binoculars. Thanks

    I know, imagine protecting the wildlife
    Don't tell anyone about your troubles. Half of them don't care, and the other half are glad it happened to you.

    It's ok if you disagree with me, I can't force you to be right

    Would that be the same local that I saw walking his dog alongside the sluice , on the marsh, right in front of the birders behaving themselves by sticking to the path on the bank.
    Probably thought it a 'a right laugh' to scare all the birds off.

    I think you'll find it's because a rare bird has descended - maybe they could fence off the sky and ask the birds to go elsewhere.

    I am a local, and a birder, and thoroughly p**d off that I've probably missed this one
    One way to stop a runaway horse is to bet on him.
