The late morning was spent along Beacon Ponds and beach. Bud loved the swim in the sea. I could see Adam Hutt in Holderness Field. I was going to make my way up onto the embankment to view the Slav Grebe again which had moved onto the ponds. In the end I decided to spare him the over-enthusiastic welcome he would have received from Bud! Instead I called in on Phil who was doing a few repairs on his caravan. No birds of note seen,
Late afternoon was spent down at Stone Creek. On the way down I had a couple of Buzzards at Sunk Island. I chose the west of my Patch due to the fact that the sky "seemed" to be clearer. Maybe even a chance of sunshine? One advantage of the South Holderness peninsular are the tremendous views you get. It's the nearest you can get around here to "BIG Country" which I love when I visit the States.
The nearer I got to Stone Creek, the more clouds appeared. Never mind. I chose my usual vantage point and started to scan the fields. It was 3pm.
The light had "gone" again but there was still time for a "good bird"
...and boy did I get one!!
Poor quality record shots but thrilled with a male...
