Heaven knows i'm miserable now
Eventually got back home this afternoon. That bloody ash cloud shut Sumburgh yesterday afternoon which meant a 24hr stop at Glasgow Airport incurring another delay. The delays meant missing new migrants on Whalsay and probably around patch, as well as another Wryneck, this time under John Lauries house. A King Eider from yesterday at Sandwick would have been nice, if it was there today. So mental note to self and all ' if you need to travel DON'T FLY'. I also tried to connect with birds on Thursday on the way to the airport but failed miserably also? Had a scan for the White-billed Diver in Mousa sound, no joy, then a Hoopoe at Exnaboe seen 5 minutes before i got there, bugger. Even away south i managed one measly year tick? A Swift. Enough moaning back home had a quick drive round patch in the freezing wind, a red Knot at the Houb, bloody great.
