November.



Above - The north end of Boulmer looking towards Longhoughton Steel. As you can see, not much cover for Pallas's up here, but, its along here that Richard Dunn found one in weeds ( out of shot) a couple of years back. My only Boulmer record.



All I could manage was this confiding female Stonechat flycatching from the wall...



and 5 Robins were around the small car parking area. A mini arrival perhaps.

Later 160+ Pink footed Geese flew over our house south.

I see a few smaller migrants have turned up today. I might try some better areas of cover in the morning...

I so enjoy your posts Boulmer - and is that sky really that blue? Something that I don't recognise!

I envy you your pink-foots!

Yes Tricia the sky was b'loooo. A pleasant day all round really.

Dean - Maybe with global warming it wont be too long ;)

Joel and I had about 160 Pink Feet flying south this morning over Alnmouth, perhaps there is a Boulmer Triangle and they just came out....maybe that's where the Rough Legged Buzzards go.

What a lovely blue sky. Great picture of the Robin as well.
