Old Guy Rd midday

Bright and clear first light this morning then a massive bank of fog rolled in and shut everything down. The fog rolled about like smoke until mid afternoon, clearing then returning looking as though it was rising up out of the valley.
So, with no vis mig possible it was a drive round Old Guy Road at lunchtime to check the cricket pitch and surrounding fields.
The pitch still held 5 Skylark and 3 Pied Wagtails whilst around 40 Goldfinch moved around the thistle patches.
A few Common gulls were in surrounding fields along with masses of Starling and that was it.
Swallows are becoming noticeable by their absence now.

Swallows have really thinned out last week or so though there are a few odd pairs still feeding young!
