This morning was cool and cloudy with a strengthening SW wind, which brought rain from mid morning till mid afternoon.

Very little was recorded on my patch at all in the poor conditions, just a few over flying HERRING GULLS, even the SWALLOWS that were lined up on the fence, were not wasting energy trying to catch the few insects that were out!

I found no newly fledged young, although ROBIN, DUNNOCK and GREAT SPOTTED WOODPECKER nests have loud begging calls coming from them, so it shouldn't be long now before they are seen. A WHITETHROAT was watched as it sang, carrying nest material to its secretive nest at the Greenhouse Grounds.

No chance with the camera today, so here's some more images from my visit to Bough Beech yesterday...........

Hi Warren, my name is Raf, you'd know me as The extreme photographer as named by Dave from Lalows blog.
I was just reading Dave's blog and I noticed in the comments you mentioned visiting there next month, Is there Pembrokeshire? If you are down this way and you'd like any help with anything or just fancy putting a face to the name please get in touch.
Nice blog by the way and some awesome shots too.
