Greenfinch, Snipe and Ratty

Greenfinch, Carduelis chloris
On Thursday I visited Arundel WWT again, hoping to find Ratty with the new lens. No sign of him in the morning. The Snipe was still feeding in front of the Scrape hide. I found a Greenfinch on the feeder. Ratty was finally sighted at one of his favourite haunts.
