A brief check at Breydon south shore at lunchtime after just receiving a BINS message that was 2 hours too late (!!), informing me that the WT Eagle had just been seen at Breydon revealed little, save for travellers camping near the car park with Rottweillers and Bull Terriers which didn't encourage me to stay for long. I've learnt to be very wary as I have been bitten before by traveller's dogs (during the fair near the Lowestoft netposts one Easter, where you all saw your Isabelline Wheatear last year, guess who didn't see it!), attacked by a Bull Terrier at Fisher Row which kept charging into me and a Rottweiller attacked me once on Hounslow Heath pulling me to the ground, luckily I escaped unhurt but very shaken! No apology from the owner whatsoever. I do not have a prejudice against dogs and even like the ones that don't attack me or bark at me. I have even been shot at by travellers whilst birdwatching in Donkey Wood near Feltham in West London.
I hope this isn't the start of my infamous dipping sequences as I have now missed Cattle Egret and WT Eagle in the local area over the last few days. Sounds ominously like a start of very long dipping sequence.
