Apparantly at 4.30pm today i was Dead

As its late,and i have a couple of days to cover,i am going to be brief for both days.
Monday the Boozybirders,the majority of whom,including myself,don't really drink anymore,made our way at 5.15am up the A12 to the Suffolk Bird Paradise which is Minsmere.We arrived at Eastbridge to see Barn Owl,in fact we had an earlier one about a minute or so before we arrived.On arriving at Eastbridge and obviously upsetting a Photographer who obviously thought the area was his alone he said "the Owl won't come back now you lot are all here",he then dissapeared and the Owl came back,Plonker!!
The day got better with such birds as Bittern,Marsh Harrier,Crossbills,Great Grey Shrike,more Barn Owls,Treecreeper,Marsh tit,Glossy Ibis,Spotted redshank the list goes on,in fact have some photos,then i will move on to Tuesdays entry (thanks to Howard Vaughan for another top day)

I got up at 3am and worked through to mid Afternoon,i popped into Broadfield farm and had 3 Buzzards,9 chiffchaff,2 Bullfinch,Kestrel,2 Sparrowhawk and a Willow Warbler,yay,i had had a Whitethroat at fen lane,north ockendon this morning so the migrants are starting to come in now.
After my birding this afternoon,i settled down,sitting on the grass when i must of fell asleep laying down,i woke up after around 20 minutes to find a paramedic walking towards me.She asked if i was ok,"yes i replied" looking a bit puzzled,she explained how someone had reported me as lying dead on the floor despite me lying on my side with my head resting on my shoulders,not exactly the classic dying position.I apologised for them being dragged out but she saw the funny side of things and said i was perfectly entitled to fall asleep while lying on the grass,so watch out if you fall asleep on the beach this summer,you may be dead!!!!
Tonight i went over to watch Hornchurch,we beat Margate 3-0,totally outclassed them despite them being a fairly decent side.We are now 4 points behind Billericay and our game at home against them on Bank Holiday Monday can't come soon enough for me,Come On Hornchurch!!!!
