As in blowing a.....
Gale force westerlies today made birding a non starter here in Northumberland. At this time of year, this is just about the worst weather we can have. My sole item of note today was a House Martin over Alnwick.
Earlier this week the forecast showed this westerly to swing round to the north. Now if this happened we would get some good seawatching, but it doesnt look too promising. The wind may be slightly NW tomorrow but thats about it.
My plans are to be out first thing to give the sea an hour just in case...I'll keep you posted.
