Dishwater vision ?

Another blustery dull day, but thankfully rain free. A walk around Brough with the dogs before i checked it properly produced a Jackdaw and a Blackcap. Once free from my restraints checked to see if the Woodlark was still about, it was but was even flightier than yesterday. A check of the rig produced another Blackcap and a Chiffchaff. Whilst checking out a slightly melanistic Redwing i managed to flush the now relocated Woodlark, just a stones throw from my house feeding on a neighbours drive. Thankfully with the aid of my car excellent views were had, which is more than i can say about my photos ! The objective lens resembles the bottom of an empty pint pot. New camera on its way i think.

A Reed Bunting was new and a patch tick feeding loosely with Redwings and 2 Ring Ouzels were new.

Around isle, a Jackdaw was at Hamister and the Little Bunting and a Leeser Whitethroat were at Sandwick. Another windy one forecast tomorrow, thankfully badminton will take me to lunch.
