Those Stock doves have been around a few days Dave, not a common bird up there.
Buzzards dont seem to mind the wind, 2 up late afternoon.

Always good to see Redshank - remind me of the sea.
Bet it was grim up there today though Dave.

It was grim John but I was after Kittiwake ! One at Blackmoorfoot today so still chance next few days with the current forecast.

Interesting with the Stock Doves Bri. Don’t think we will get any Wheatears till this bad weather passes.

Bradshaw Rambler said...

yep. I was hoping for Kittiwake at Leeshaw Dave.
