Due to spectacular incompetence on my part I managed to miss the high tide seawatch today, so to pay penance I spent an hour or so on the mosses in the afternoon.
I figured the suffering would balance the karmic books in my seawatching account.
It was an overgrown and windblasted nightmare - pretty much everything was keeping down, although a few Grey Partridges were about on the Withins and Plex, and flocks of Woodpigeons are growing around Station Lane.
Red Legged Partridges sprinting down the tracks on the Withins.
One Whitethroat still singing, and a Skylark gamely attempting the same in the teeth of the westerly on Plex.
One Common Buzzard up over Carr Moss, but good numbers of hirundines hawking for insects in the lee of the woods along with Swifts.
Just one flock of Lapwings - keeping their heads down in crops on Plex.
Tide and wind still good for tomorrow so I'll try a seawatch.
Anyone seeing anything out there?????
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies....
