All I have to offer today is the sighting of the months first LESSER BLACK BACKED GULL, seen on the college sports pitch as I trudged into work in the pouring rain.

This afternoon I trudged back home again - in the pouring rain, which became monsoon like before i got home, I don't believe I've ever been out in such heavy rain before, I couldn't have got any wetter if i'd jumped in a river!

It did brighten up a little later in the afternoon, but I had lost the incentive to go out for the last hour of daylight. I tried to watch the garden feeders, but I ended up chasing off the Sprawk every 20 mins! It's not funny any more!!!

Just showery up here, but that and being busy, stopped me from venturing onto the patch.

Hi Warren.
Sorry that you didn't get a list today. We too only had a short heavy downpour, no wind with it.Still at least you added 1to your list

Better luck tomorrow Warren. Touch wood, I don't think rains forecast here for the next couple of days (for a change!)
