Sunday 2nd June
A not bad sort of a day, after quite a lot of rain that fell though the night… the wind has just started to pick up in its speed and noise as well!!
Yesterday, Lesley had carried out a recce down at Foreland where the Bird nerds are meeting up on Tuesday at 6.30 pm. The birds seen by her included 2 Cuckoos, 2 Common Whitethroats, many Stonechats, Willow Warbler and also a Spotted Flycatcher.
Up here at home this afternoon, we saw a Hooded Crow on top of the wall, with a Pheasant chick, we tried to get it to stop, but too late as the corvid flew off with the chick in its’ beak, so I suppose that’s the way it goes sometimes…
