It's not that bad - yet.

Another day of rain. We started the day with Snipe, Golden Plover and Dunlin but just as I was getting the scope trained on the plovers a Sparrowhawk came flashing through and flushed the flock! A Mountain Hare was sat in a sheltered spot trying to be invisible.
Another location provided good views of some common waders - a couple of Dunlin...
...a handful of Turnstone...
...and some nice Ringed Plover.
We managed to see both types of seal, a couple of Golden Eagle, Whinchat, WT Eagle - all the usual stuff and a nice view of a male Hen Harrier.
