Wet, windy and a Whinchat (1st October)

A brief excursion onto the patch before heading back and starting work for the day.  The rain wasn't very pleasant but I still braved some seawatching.  It was still as poor as the last couple days due to inappropriate wind directions (SE) so all I saw were 5 Mediterranean Gulls and an increase in Gannet numbers compared to the last couple days, on which I nearly drew a blank for this species!

I moved on towards the golf course and was soon rewarded with a Whinchat (a good Fal bird!) perched up on the scrubby area near the highest point of the course and along with a nearby Wheatear which both showed well in the drizzle whilst all the other birds hid in dense cover.
