Several hours on the bog...

...and not much to show for it. Morden Bog, that is. A short cycle ride from home and a very long walk saw me scraping the barrel a bit for birds this afternoon - some fine male Stonechats, three singing Tree Pipits, and just a single Dartford were about the best of it. A Four-spotted Chaser was also freshly emerged - Hobby food normally, but not yet, as there weren't any. I learnt later that the 5 wandering White Storks had been seen over the area this morning, but I was on Portland at the time.
