I only had a 90 minute patch visit this morning, as I was spending the day with my lovely wife on a trip to the sea front for some down time  :-)

The 90 minutes was spent on a walk over to the College Grounds, still in pursuit of the hoped for arrival of the Spotted Flycatchers, they have not arrived yet though! GOLDCREST, COAL TIT, TREECREEPER, BULLFINCH and a distant off patch CUCKOO were the best of what I recorded there this morning. A couple of HERRING GULLS were on the college sports pitch, while a few minutes listening at the Wooded Headlands at Migrant Alley for a possible Turtle Dove didn't turn one up. A LITTLE OWL was seen perched up on the Greenhouse Guttering on my return walk home.

Back at it again tomorrow!

How lovely, a sunny day by the sea. I hope you both had a wonderful time :-) The nearest seaside place to me is nearly three hours away so we don't get there very often.

Love those Robin photos!

I avoid the seaside like the plague on a Bank Holiday Warren - hope you had a great day out without the binocs.

The early morning Robin on your 90 minute patch visit is a delight. And your down time by the sea with your 'lovely' wife, such admiral and beautiful sentiments Warren.

So there are other things in life than birds/birding after all!!

Whoops.... Shouldn't that be 'admirable' and beautiful sentiments!!

Down by the coast, was it Reculver where the real birds are!! Tomorrow looks good looking at the forecast.
