What a difference a day makes...

Yesterday it felt as though Spring was really here at last, it was mild and the sun peaked out (from time to time anyway). With it came the first wheatears of the season on patch too, two males just a few hundred metres from my house. They were mega distant though, here's a record shot on x 200 zoom - you can tell, 'cause it's crap:


By contrast today it was almost Arctic conditions with sleet, rain and bitterly cold winds. Not surprisingly the wheatears had both moved on and there was little of note except a few yammers singing and the flock of 300+ golden plover still flying around calling. It's all change again tomorrow, a warm front is suppose to be moving in off the continent. I'm hoping it brings some suitably continental birds with it.
