My normal regular visits to the North Wall have been curtailed recently as the weather has been so awful! From the regular reports there has been little of interest of note but today was bright, the wind had subsided and the forecast for the weekend was again an atrocious one so it was an opportunity to get out!
The horse field was a bit of a 'thrush fest' with Blackbirds, Song Thrushes and Redwings feeding in good numbers.
The regular Kestrel was giving a good photographic opportunity so it was good to have a subject on which to concentrate.
As I returned along Church Lane another, or the same bird was on the power line.
Apart from a large Lapwing flock and plenty of Wigeon it was very quiet...here's a male in flight.
Back on the beach there was a decent flock of Mediterranean Gulls. Some were getting into summer plumage...a very encouraging sign.
Hopefully, once Storm Dennis is out the way we can look forward to some reasonable weather and some good birds!
