Food for thought

A sunny warm day and not a hint of wind meant the bloody midges were out, in force. Slightly better on patch than yesterday with a patch tick, 3 Common Scoters off the Houb also around were a Whitethroat and a singing Chiffchaff.

Plenty of birds feeding young also with the Starlings screaming from the dry stone dyke next to the house and Arctic Terns flying back and forth with small fry, presumably food for their mate. Winds later in the week seem more favourable for some migrants but until then will just have to keep plugging away.
