A quick trip out on what was supposed to be a nice day was just one shower after another. A small group of Whooper Swans had dropped in but they will soon be on their way north to their breeding grounds.
One that was difficult to see was this Buzzard that was having breakfast.
There are plenty of pairs of Mistle Thrush around at the moment but it always seems to be dull conditions when they pose for a photo - they don't call it the Stormcock for nothing!
The dull conditions can't spoil a decent view of a Lapwing.
