Later on a look around Moonfleet hotel and it's filter bed produced a number of Chiffchaffs and Blackcaps.
|Chiffchaff. If you can read the ring, it would be interesting to know when and where it was ringed.|
On the way back to the car, myself and quite a number of other observers of the Stone Curlews were subjected to a tirade of abuse by a horse rider. Thing was, none of us had done any wrong. We were viewing the birds from the coast path, yet this woman, yes woman was intent on telling us to F off and called us all C U next tuesdays and quite weirdly, also called us perverts. The latter I take major offence to. Not only that, not only was she not in control of herself, but also more seriously, wasn't properly in control of her horse. This, of course, could have caused serious injury, or even death to herself or the people around her. Like a coward, she stayed on her horse. Had she got off her horse, she would never have spoken to me in that manner again. In fact, she may not have been able to speak again. Enough said me thinks.
