Thacka flood & Beacon

The fungi is Shaggy cap.
Went up to the flood this morning , the sun was really warm again just a chilly wind keeping temps. down. There was 20 Common gulls , about 15 Black-headed gulls , 150 to 200 Lapwing, 1 Lesser black back gull & 2 immature. There was 1 moorhen and a few Starling feeding at the side of the flood , also 3 Snipe but could have been more hiding behind the rocks. Over the A6 over in the East 2 Buzzard showed briefly.
In the afternoon I took the Westies for a walk on the Beacon but as usual it was quiet up there apart from hearing a buzzard call , but it was an enjoyable walk and warmer than the morning as the wind had dropt quite a bit, not bad for the 1st of October.
