It took me just 40 minutes to realise I was wasting my time, trying to find newly fledged young in the conditions was hopeless, I got as far as looking around the Greenhouse Grounds, where at least a WHITETHROAT and BLACKBIRD found something to sing about. I also completed a circuit of the fields and paddocks of Migrant Alley, but little was seen but for a few HERRING GULLS on the ripped up paddock, along with a BLACK HEADED and two LESSER BLACK BACKED GULLS. The conditions relented slightly during the afternoon, but by then I had other commitments :-(
Tomorrows weather looks like being much the same, so my weekends full patch walks will have to be postphoned until Monday and Tuesday, when the weather looks like improving somewhat.
Luckily I still have a few 'blog brighteners' left in the 'Blog Folder' all taken from my garden feeding station - something to look at today at least!
