A cold North East wind blew this afternoon as I crossed migrant alley, it felt like it was cutting me in half! The last thing I felt like doing was taking my hands out of my pockets to scan the sheep pasture and horse paddocks. I was glad I did though, as the distant blobs I had spied were a flock of 68 LAPWING, around 200 STARLING, 45 ROOKS and 2 BLACK HEADED GULLS. I checked out the Lapwing for Golden Plover, but my eyes started streaming in the cold wind, or was I just upset cause there were no Golden Plovers?
