View from the door
Turnstones marching in the ice and snow - honest they are there! 'What do you think of the weather, Bob?'
'I dunno, Bert, but I'm not getting my camera out!'
Does this qualify for a murmuration of Starlings? They certainly had plenty to say. We have a flock of about 20-30 birds round here and you never see them in the gardens as they do all their foraging on the shore or in the fields. I wonder if they'll ever take handouts? Cracking birds though and great mimics, the sound of a distant Buzzard is usually one of these guys pulling your leg:-)
I managed to get 3 shots of this Blue Tit and this is the best of them. I think it gives a good impression of how cold it is though. Brrrrrrrrrrrrr!!
The morning count of birds produced 3 Greenshank, 14 Ringed Plover, 9 Turnstone, 6 Golden Plover, 1 Little Grebe, 8 Curlew, 8 Redshank, 10 Common Gull and 4 BH Gull.
