Must be cursed!!
Slightly fraught start to the day but a Merlin over the A31, albeit brief and distant, lightened the mood!! At Blashford south side, four Bramblings but not much else in the drizzle. Brief chat with John, Bryn and Jan.
North side had thirty or so Sand Martins, one Swallow, the Black-necked Grebe and a brief Little Gull. Two LRPs were displaying and a distant Raven was rolling along. On the way home another Swallow over the motorway.
As usual I left a little too early with Bob posting the arrival of the Iceland Gull probably ten minutes after driving off!! And again the Ring-billed turned up later.
Needless to say after the last visit the return of cold weather reduced insects to nil.
