Out with Bunty to Boulmer just before the rain started. It was dull and overcast but mild.

Her walk was in two parts, once behind the small caravan site but sheep have been put into the field so I didnt want to disturb them. Next we walked from the village along the dune front south.

Behind the caravans, looking towards the old airfield, the Peregrine could be seen sitting in the newly emerging corn. The constant barracking from the crows and magpies attracted me to scan the area with the bins before I picked it up. It may have been on a kill but it was too distant to tell without the scope. Thats a Peregrine three out of the last four days...

Also here 25 Pink footed Geese and a greylag flew over NW.

In the village, 11 Redwings were in one bush next to the Herring Sheds cottage. The first I've seen here this year, where have they come from? There weren't any berries and no hard weather locally. Maybe the snows on the hills have pushed them to the coast.

71. Pink footed Goose.
72. Redwing.
