Just time to see what the N/NE breeze was bringing this evening, so I had a quick walk round Sands Lake.
Usual stuff - at least 93 Tufties now, either preening or sleeping, the pair of Mute Swans, regular gull sp.
In the bushes 7+ Robins were ticking away, and a Greater 'Pecker called.
One Goldcrest and a few titmice, with Mipits bleeping overhead.
In the southwest corner a single Redwing flew out of the Sycamores and White Poplars, sighing as they do, before flying off north east.
15 minutes later a flock of eight Redwing went over heading in the same direction - possibly to roost in the buckthorn in Birkdale NR?
Okay, so it's not Spurn, but you've gotta open your autumn account somewhere.
Loads of Evening Primrose still flowering in the cleared area opposite Pontins, and a confiding Wood Mouse was a whole lot more appealing than the Brown Rats which scurried about the track.
One of the rats was the size of a Ford Mondeo, and I got a shot of him just as he lumbered into the undergrowth.
I called him Geoff.
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
