From the Clifftop

It's been pretty wild on the clifftop of late, gales and lashing rain making seawatching through the window the best option. I usually don't expect to see much when it's very windy, but there was enough to hold my interest yesterday morning. 65 Gannets flew W , and a nice movement of 48 Kittiwakes likewise, but otherwise just the basic species-Red Throated Divers [15], Fulmars [3],  the usual intrepid  GBB Gulls and just two auks.

The weather cleared in the afternoon so I paid a visit to East Guldeford Levels, no time for the full walk but the remote Tree Sparrow ditchside reeds  held a record 100 birds, on the soggy fields were 250 Carrion Crows, 80 Skylarks and 6 Snipe
