No birding again

I had considered getting up early to look for the reported Wryneck at Blakehill. I did wake at six but decided that staying in bed was the best option. Fortunately for me it wasn’t seen today.  Dragging my mum along with me I then headed for Salisbury to look at a telescope that a fellow WOS member was selling. After buying the scope we headed to the National Trust house and gardens at Mottisfant. A lovely property and a very enjoyable visit. We saw a couple of Greater Spotted Woodpeckers, Robin and Wren along with several Trout in the River Test which flows through the grounds. The intended stop on Salisbury Plain on the return journey didn’t happen as it starting raining just before we reached Tidworth. So it ended up as a nice day but with no birding.
