On Days Like These

Marsh Marigold

When it rains like today I sometimes get the urge to get out there, especially if the wind is north or north-easterly, ’cause you never know whats going to turn up, anything can happen, like Gannet or Kittiwake and both Gannet and Kittewake and others, has happened to me on days like these, today though I had to make do with three Wheatear’s, two at Bennerley and a female [again] at Chat Corner, most of the local “bods” had the good sense to “hunker down” so you hope for the occasional wind blown beauty to show up, not today though and that’s how it is on days like these !

 

Bennerley Marsh. 2 Wheatear, 11 Lapwing, Grey Heron, 2 Canada Goose, 5 Black-headed Gull, Cormorant. Chat Corner. 2 Lapwing, Wheatear, 3 Skylark, Meadow Pipit, Green Woodpecker. Shipley Gate. 6 Gadwall, 2 Pheasant.
