It barely stopped raining all day today, so not much patch watching was done, I did try, but in the three attempts I made to get out I got soaked :-( In the end I ran out of dry coats and hats!
I was hoping for a Swallow to have been forced down low by the heavy rain over the sheep pasture and paddocks of Migrant Alley, but all I saw were a few HERRING GULLS and a GREY HERON, although I did pick up a possible Swallow way in the distance off patch, but my bins were water covered and the light was very poor, so it remained unidentified.
Nothing much else to report of any note, a BLACKCAP was in my garden, but not much else is coming to the feeders apart from an increase in CHAFFINCH'S. I had some long window watches this afternoon, hoping a Brambling might drop in with them, a bit of a long shot - but as its my birthday today something could of gone right for me!!!!
Better luck tomorrow I hope!
