Back home to sunshine
A few days away in Scotland mixing work and pleasure resulted in some fantastic experiences with Hen Harrier, Merlin and Peregrine not to mention the accompanying birds along the way. I managed to avoid the worst of the weather - the rain poured down and the wind blew strong overnight but most of the day was fine and blustery.
Back home the sun is shining and the berries on the Rowans glowing red - a very appetising sight for any passing Waxwing! They were all over the place last weekend in Scotland but just not where I was a any precise moment in time! Now they're nearby in Barrow and Burnley so they've just got to pass over here soon. I'll keep my ears primed for that delightful soft trilling call!
