Sitting at home enjoying my second hobby of procrastination, I idly went on line to check the RBA news (I no longer receive alerts), to discover a Snow Bunting was showing well at Daventry Country Park, Northants, only ten miles from home! I had to go, as this would be my first Snow Bunting in two years! In my rush to get going, I left my mobile at home and half way to Daventry, realised I had no money for the car park! On arrival at Daventry, very few cars were in the car park, so I parked close to the end and legged to the dam where I could see three birders standing. This was to be a quick visit as I did not want to attract a parking fine! The Snow Bunting was showing well, but below brambles on the dam and seemed unconcerned at our presence. Images were soon obtained before interest was turned to a Little Gull (again my first in two yearsand a leucistic Black Headed Gull. I could not risk staying more than half an hour, fearing a parking ticket which would have made it a very expensive alternative to procrastination! I was lucky!
