Responsible Birding Diary, Tuesday 22.9.20

The action was quiet again at Ferry Meadows this morning. I think the first notable bouts of migration will start in a week or two. In the afternoon, my dear wife Jo and I went for a walk along the River Welland at Deeping St James (south Lincolnshire)...


The action was quiet again at Ferry Meadows this morning. I think the first notable bouts of migration will start in a week or two. In the afternoon, my dear wife Jo and I went for a walk along the River Welland at Deeping St James (south Lincolnshire). It has become renowned for Otters, often visible during the day, and we had heard of a family of three seen earlier. We were lucky enough to eventually connect with them, but they can be very sneaky and disappeared. Luckily, we got a call from a friend saying they had been refound half a mile or so further upstream.

And we were just in time to see them fishing and moving with pace further upstream. We had some superb views, although photo opportunities were brief!
