|Sunrise, the first glimpse of sun this early for a month!|
There were a few bits of birding interest noted before the rain fell though, The WOODPIGEON passage continued, with some large flocks going south, some containing over 500 birds, BLACK HEADED and HERRING GULLS were also passing over in good numbers too, plus a single CORMORANT tagged along.
|Wood Pigeons heading south early on|
|Woodpigeons still going over 2 hours later|
|Mute Swan, well, the bottom half of one :-)|
The KESTREL pair were at their resting poles in the Greenhouse Grounds, and as I watched them I heard the raucous calls of a RING NECKED PARAKEET, I scanned the skies but it took a moment or two to come into view, a strange shape in the local sky :-)
|God knows what blogger has done to these photo's :-(|
|I didn't upload them in this state!|
