I finally got back to Walton Lakes today to see if I could see the Bearded Tits that were still present and been seen by the world and his wife since Paul had found them last week.
An early visit before work saw me disturbing a Water Rail from under the boardwalk and a Snipe from the front of the Platform, also a flock of around a dozen Siskins from the top of the nearby Alders.
I did hear the Beardies at one point but they never came out into the open.
This meant a return visit at lunchtime. Gen was already there and hadn't seen them and in short time I was there there was no sight nor sound. Looks like I'll have to go back.
