30. red-throated diver

Strong winds like we had over the weekend can occasionally push divers and seaduck into the harbour. Red-throat is the most likely of course, but still a good one to get.

One to get you drooling, I would normally spend days scanning the distant mountaisides with the 'scope hoping for this species, so I nearly choked on my lunch as this beauty came gliding down the valley just now:

39 Lammergeier

So, with hopefully Woodpigeon returning soon and the nearby farm's House Sparrows surely due to pay us a visit I should break the magic 40 barrier before the end of the month. After that I might as well sit in the sauna till March like Wari in Finland (except we don't have one)

Nothing new here - but a Greylag repeat.

Snowed in - had to abandon my car on the way home last night after struggling for several miles.
