Oops, it seems like I am a bit behind with my posts (its now Saturday early evening). I went out Monday and Tuesday evening and then just forgot to update. Basically the title is where I was birding, not the state of birding around the local area although its nor far off. I set off from my house and checked a few pits near to my house. At this point I was going to rant about shooters just blasting birds out of the sky, letting them die and just leaving them but the moment has passed so cant be bothered. Not much of note so will give you site and the birds seen/heard there.
