After a bit of babysitting this morning and then jobhunting with no luck i decided to go birdwatching with Mr Thomlinson this afternoon in search once again of the White Tailed eagle.Nothing.Am i surprised,no,after all it was reported yesterday by a woman,probably a heron.
What we did see was 40 Red Legged Partridge,flock of 30 linnets,Sparrowhawk,kestrel,1 Buzzard,thousands of gulls,greenfinch,goldfinch,chaffinch,rooks,crows,magpies,3 jays,6 skylark.
Also great tit,blue tit,2 coal tits,moorhen,8 Pheasants but no White Tailed Eagle,after searching 4 probable sites we decided to call it a day,not a bad few hours in all fairness and i may give it one last go tomorrow before giving up on this one.
Today was the day after AFC Hornchurch seemed to be getting back on track after our 4-0 demolition of Folkestone last night,it was also the day the draw for the 3rd round of the Essex Senior Cup,a competition we got to the final in last season,although the actual final was played in auguest this pre season,we lost 2-1 to Colchester United at Bridge Avenue,the home of the mighty Hornchurch
We have been drawn against Eton Manor who play at Barking FC ground in Mayesbrook Park,a ground which does not have a bar,don't want to sound like a plonker but i am not sure if i am going to go to a game which doesn't sell any sort of refreshments at half time,if it was the FA Cup i would go but maybe not in a game we should win by at least 6 clear goals.
Nipper had her cot put up by Gary today,i tried putting it up along with 3 other people but as we had no instructions it seemed impossible,Gary made it look easy,well done Gary lol,nipper can have the cot tonight while i go back to the family bed after my night on the sofa last night,i must say how enjoyable it was to sleep on such an uncomfortable sofa
