The day the lights went out.

Gulls through the fog


This was as clear as it got.

Completely fogged out at Queensbury today from getting up , and it looks like, till going to bed.
A slight clearance at mid day from dense to thick when 21 Common gulls and 9 Black Headed were in Foxhill, other than that not a bird has been seen. Even the Jackdaw flock going to roost this evening could only be heard going over and not seen.
Should be a good moving day tomorrow if the lights come back on.

Back from Arizona and still jet-lagged,but I noticed that there was a bit of a fall here in the fog this lunchtime.Unusually, there were lots of birds down on the road in front of the house.
Mostly Chaffinches, but there were also a couple of Robins,Dunnocks and several Blackbirds. More interesting, were the two Goldcrests and a single Redwing.

We have two Nuthatches coming in regularly. From their behaviour, you would think they were feeding young, else, they must have a cache of sunflower hearts about a foot tall!
