When a storm is threatening...




3.30pm Boulmer. Took Bunt for a walk this afternoon to the beach. The tide was fully in and very high. It was lapping rotten seaweed and had attracted a thousand birds to feed. Mostly Black headed and Common Gulls, but also 32 Eiders, 15 Mallards, 56+ Redshank and 60+ Turnstones. Checked through the gulls but could find nothing unusual. A Sparrowhawk kept flushing everying into the air making a dramatic picture against the leaden sky.
