Out and About

A right miserable day with rain and low cloud becoming worse as the day carried on.

This morning 5 Greenfinches, 4 Chaffinch, 3 Goldfinch, Great Tit, Blue Tit and House Sparrow on the feeders in my Wakeham back garden. Overhead more finches and 2 Redwing heading north west. At the front of the house a Harlequin Ladybird scaling the wall.

A rather wet looking Harlequin Ladybird scaling the wall at the front of the cottage. More on Harlequins and Ladybirds Here

Later as I drove into Weymouth there were at least 300 Brent Geese on The Fleet and a dozen or more large waders. On the way back 2 hours later, just 1 Brent Goose and 11 Great Black Black-backed Gulls.
