  1. You must have been just behind us Penny, we were at the Plantation until about 2pm. Didn't see much at all, just one Ring Ouzel, two Whinchats, a couple of Wheatears and about 15 Grey Partridges, it was dead as anything up till then. Pays to go a bit later obviously. We did however have a nice little tour of Halfway House, courtesy of a friend who's staying there right now. Now I've got aching hip bones after that long walk back....
