The first bird I had was a calling Brambling heading south and this was the start of a trickle of vis. The vis included 2 Goldfinch, 4 Pied Wagtails, 13 Meadow Pipits, 4 Carrion Crows, 4 Chaffinch, Fieldfare, 6 Linnets, Redwing, Woodpigeon, 11 Jackdaws and a Siskin. I had a Rock Pipit fly 'in-off' at a great height and then plummet down. It perched on a concrete post to preen before heading off southwest. You will find a grainy picture of it below.
The only birds that I thought were grounded this morning were 14 Blackbirds and a single Song Thrush. Certainly not grounded, but flying in to feed on adjacent farmland were 1,404 Pink-footed Geese. Unfortunately I couldn't see them from the road so couldn't have a look through them to see if they were holding anything else.
The sea was very quiet with just 8 Eiders and 15 Cormorants. I walked back along the hedgerows trying to produce a 'goody' but it wasn't to be. Instead I took a couple of pictures of the beautiful flowering gorse and with the sweet coconut scent of the flowers on the wind I headed home for a spot of decorating. Ouch!
