We joined Jane, Connie & Sami en route, as we were delayed by a physio appointment. We phoned and found out they were on Brownlee, so headed across Rushmore to meet them. But on Rushmore, we had an excellent view of Horned Larks and Snow Buntings.
The group had already seen a group of baiters after a Snowy Owl, so we decided to leave and go to
Iber Rd. Here we saw our target Northern Pintail with
a large group of Mallards.
Next stop was
west where we checked out a nest box for a possible owl roost.
Then it was back to Rushmore to try for Gray Partridge - no luck. But we did see more Snow Buntings a group of 6 birders traipsing across private property having flushed a Snowy.
