Too windy?

First time out for a few weeks and the river level has certainly risen.
High gusting winds seem to prevent many birds from showing their faces,but never one to give in it was best foot forward and a quick walk around the village.

Not much about in the fields with the exception of corvids and pigeons.
Moved on to the North duff carrs wind now stronger than ever but was greeted by two hungry Bullfinch.
(pic not great)

 Valley very water heavy but combined with the rain and the sun it still produces some stunning light.

Huge flock of mixed Golden Plover and lapwings easily 1000+birds. Redshank, Pintail, Shovelor,Teal all present in good numbers.

Whoopers feeding in the surrounding fields and good numbers of Snipe were also seen.
Back for more soon.

If our birds are few and far between and you fancy something a bit different have a look at this.....

well worth a look. (but remember the time difference.)
