Power Ticking At Bennerley

October 22, 2012 in The Bennerley Birders Pages by Bennerley

Got a phone call from Mick Leatherhead reporting Whooper Swans at Bennerley, so rushed over just to see seven Whooper Swans getting up and flying off over the viaduct, still, they were on the ground when I first saw them ! I’ve seen Whooper’s fly over quite a few times but never on the ground and I think it’s been a long time since anyone else has, an excellent “tick” for Bennerley !

Two more “ticks”  on the way home, Snipe and Jack Snipe, plus a few regulars, so not bad for an hours birding !
