Day 6 since our dismally failing albatross twitch to Bempton.
I can easily get over missing out on such a great bird, so that's not the issue.
What wakes me up in the morning is that it is still there and has been present for the full 6 days since! Due to other commitments, work, builders etc I am too tied up to set aside a whole day for a return visit. I just wish it would leave now so I can get on....
To take my mind off it, I'm trying to focus on the small things locally when on dog walks etc. A nice Merlin dashed along the coast road the other day and an adult moulting Mediterranean Gull flew south across the coast fields. There are flocks of warblers around the village early in the morning now, Willow Warblers and Chiffchaffs with a Sedge Warbler today.
