As Grim as it Gets

Can it get worse?  Low grey cloud, strong wind and incessant drizzle.

Red Kite on a better day

The male Pied Flycatcher was still about first thing but apart from him only the local birds.  A Hoopoe fed in the garden and eventually flew off to its nest in the farm buildings.  Then a bit of a shock as a Red Kite battled its way over going south.  We normally see this species in March and October so this was a very late date.

Male Cirl Bunting also in better weather

I took a walk out when the drizzle eased and once again flushed up to a dozen Tree Pipts, 2 Subalpine Warblers and a bright male Cirl Bunting.
