Whatever the Weather?

Weather conditions affect birds...and Birders!

Unusual conditions raise hopes of new arrivals BUT are they conducive to "Good Birding"?

Time of year also relevant. Winter movements less regular but still occur. When will that Starling turn into a NUTCRACKER?!

So, conditions for bird movements...but what about conditions to bird IN?

VERY windy here today. Personally THE most frustrating conditions. Granted, can be excellent for seawatching but generally grim as it can be dry and bright yet getting good views is difficult. There are strategies you can use i.e. finding a shelter belt, woodland or hide. It is limiting though. Heavy rain ...I just put the kettle on!
