The Patch and Penrith

Red sky at night, and we hope for another good day tomorrow.

Took my good wife to work this morning then continued on with the Westies up to the patch. Had a look at the flood, the 2 Mute Swans are still with us and there was also 0ver 200 Lapwings, 3 Black-headed Gulls and the usual 6 or so Snipe on the M6 side. Close by I found 3 Fieldfare feeding on Hawthorn berries, and a small flock of Blue tits flew over. Quite a few Blackbirds about, no doubt most of them are Scandinavian birds. Also had a look at the new site where there was a large flock of mixed gulls at a distance.

One of many Waxwings around Penrith this morning.

It was a fabulous morning , blue sky and lots of sun, so after dropping the Westies back home I had a walk round to try and locate some Waxwings, Didn't have to look far as I found a flock of around 30 in Brunswick square, 5 mins walk from the house, although they were very mobile, and it was the same later when I found ones and twos in other parts of the town.

 Depending on the weather, I may have another outing tomorrow.
