No wind = no birds

Another fine day with blue skies and sunshine, unfortunately this was accompanied by absolutely no wind. A singing Chiffchaff and a newly fledged Blackbird was the best on offer around Brough so decided to check out the north of the isle. A lingering Collared Dove flew from near Challister towards Brough and if it makes it would be a welcome patch tick. 2 Chiffchaffs at Skaw and a Willow Warbler at Vats-houll made up the north count. Forecast for the next few days looks promising so hopefully the winds will produce the goods ?

Another walk round patch this afternoon hoping for the Collared Dove, it was in vain. All the action was again in the small conifer plantation, the 2 Mealy Redpolls of yesterday was increased to 4 and the Willow Warbler and Chiffchaff remain.
