Looking the other way was a different storm in the distance! Birds seen here this week include buzzard, kestrel, several snipe, curlew, pheasant (nearly got itself run over!), oystercatchers, short-eared owl and heard a grasshopper warbler!
I was sitting at my computer, when suddenly there was an almighty flash of lightning and crash of thunder. I dashed out and caught the tail end of this passing storm. Unfortunately there was no more lightning... so ended my evening of storm chasing!
The bird table was moved today out of range of a kitten. It puzzled some of the birds! The pigeons were almost the last to visit the table in the new location. The blackbirds have closely watched but have not ventured onto the table.
