November 18th

A bit boring now but more than welcome! another lovely bright morning and I was at the castle before 7am, with just ROBINS and BLACKBIRDS for company as everything else gradually joined in on the act. I really enjoyed the stroll round today, I sat for 10 minutes by a tree waiting for a Kingfisher to appear, possibly more time needed there, and did a fairly full circuit round the fields. The highlights round the fields were 3 CORMORANTS heading east. A COMMON BUZZARD flew low being mobbed by a crow and at least 1 CROSSBILL flew south. I was rubbish with the camera this morning and haven't got a lot to show for what was a really enjoyable walk!!
The sight that greeted me first thing


More Sun stuff, just making the most of it!!!

Somedays not so good birding even if a crossbill is a nice one for me......but always you take something from nature like the brilliant orange light of the sun.
Saludos!

Hi El Campero Inquieto, you are so right there is always something to see that makes the day worth while, I think my post sounds a bit blase but it's all special :-)
