I like this new blogger. You can shove pictures where you like (?) and I didn't even lose my links.
Today the wind is a strong, bitterly cold N7. Its mostly bright and sunny with some flurries of snow and hail.
After a while getting my head around blogger changes, I went for a seawatch to Boulmer. This isn't the best time of year for this activity, but you never know what might turn up. Except in this case you could probably hazard a guess...
The only birds moving at sea were Gannets at a rate of about 150 per hour north and a party of 13 Dark bellied Brent Geese. Today is quite a big tide so the waves were lapping right up to the village. Sheltering from the weather were 142 Eiders, 5 Red breasted Mergansers, 35 Knot, 9 Bar tailed Godwit and a couple of Purple Sandpipers.
After this I took Bunty for a more sheltered excursion to Howick Woods. In here were Nuthatch singing, 2 male Bullfinches an 1+ Marsh Tit.
I have just been jumping about on blog links and have had a good laugh at this blog - "Raised by Chaffinches" - http://www.milkylugs.blogspot.com/
