Absolutely hopeless today! Heavy and persistent rain all morning turned more showery in the afternoon, but even in the few short lived sunny spells the close proximity of the next shower meant the rain still fell, but it did make for some nice rainbows  ;-)

The only birds noted today were a SAND MARTIN, mixed in with the SWALLOWS and HOUSE MARTINS over the sheep pasture at Migrant Alley, and a skein of 34 CANADA GEESE flying over. I attempted twice to get out this afternoon, but was thwarted by the rain each time, just wasting my time standing under the poly tunnels watching rainbows  :-(

More luck tomorrow perhaps!

This weather is certainly affecting your months/years numbers, hopefully it will cheer up enough for you to get out and about really soon.
Love the Nuthatch pics from yesterday.

Bummer. I can't only imagine your frustration. I think I'd have the same. Better days ahead? Here's hoping:) I'll go on a birding walk for you today after I'm done with this job.
