As was expected, this mornings full patch walk was aborted after two hours, due to the continuous rain, I only got half way round before getting totally fed up with the wet stuff! I manged just 33 species, with very few highlights, one of those though was finding a small mixed feeding flock in the Greenhouse Grounds, the Alders there were providing food for at least 5 LESSER REDPOLL, 4 SISKIN and 8 GOLDFINCH. One KESTREL was up hunting over the Tree Nursery, where 3 MEADOW PIPITS were seen.The only flyovers noticed were those of HERRING and BLACK HEADED GULL.

The rain is still falling as I write this at 16:00hrs, how much more is to come ?

The photo folder is down to its last two images, taken from my garden in last Sundays glorious sunshine, - the ROBIN.

Lovely Robin Warren.

I suspect it's pretty soggy there again today. Heavy rain all night here.
