November 11th 2010

It’s been a day of self preservation as this present weather system brought in early morning heavy rain, showers and gale force winds for most of the day with the pond recording gusts of up to 56 miles an hour which made it almost impossible to cycle. Highlight of the visit was a fly over Dark-bellied Brent Goose, adult Kittiwake and a Snow Bunting which flew low from rainbow towards the public picnic area. Not sure what was out in the centre - too rough but at least 5 Goosander and 13 Goldeneye noted plus a Redshank on draycote bank.
On the downside I got drenched, fell off twice and damaged me phone so gave up on the idea of doing the roost for yesterdays Glaucous Gull and with the wind still gusting at 30mph arrived home in record time.
