Sunday 17 May 2009

Soggy memories !

The forecast rain arrived overnight, unfortunately it stayed all bloody day and was coupled with a blustery wind which was fortunately still blowing from the SE. On patch it was evident a clear out had took place as numbers were well down on yesterday. Some new arrivals though with 2 Garden Warblers, Pied Flycatcher and a Whitethroat. Also present on patch were 10+ Willow Warblers still, 2 Redstarts, Spotted Flycatcher, Lesser Whitethroat and Mealy Redpoll. Tomorrows forecast looks drier with a considerable drop in the wind speed, and with it being shopping day looks like a 6.30am start beckons.

Highlight of this soggy Sunday were 4 Dotterel found at Skaw on the golf course. Amazingly confiding they seemed to be totally oblivious of our presence. A very memorable moment.
