I was out for less than an hour this morning, the rain and wind were unrelenting!

I was only out long enough for a circuit of Migrant Alley, hoping for that passage Wheatear to drop in, which it didn't! The 80 or so BLACK HEADED GULLS were sheltering on the sheep pasture, as were 4 COMMON GULLS. Overhead, 3 LESSER BLACK BACKED GULLS sped across the grey skies on the blustery wind, as did a couple of HERRING GULLS.

The only other birds of note seen on a really crappy day, were the KESTREL pair, the female of which sat sensibly in her nest box , while the male tried a spot of hunting around the Greenhouses.

Might as well use up the photo's left in my ''blog photo folder''  :-)
