The weather forecasters said that we were in for the worst storm of the year with gale force winds and structural damage. So far, nothing. Fair, overcast light S2. Not a bad day at all. I wonder if the storm will arrive a day late?
A walk with the dog along the Snableazes track at Denwick this morning had 1 Woodcock flushed from the track side three times before it moved elsewhere, 3+ Bullfinch, 10 Meadow Pipits N, 10+ Blackbirds, 1 Tree Sparrow and a Mistle Thrush in full song ( even the Stormcock thought the weather was going to be rough).
At Boulmer this afternoon, the sun managed a few minutes at dusk. 2 Fieldfares came in low off the sea. I saw them about a mile out and they came in right over my head and headed off inland, 9 Blackbirds were on Seaton Point, also migrants presumably, 1 Sparrowhawk, 1 Red throated Diver N and 2 female Red breasted Mergansers S.
