I saw the moon…

…which after three days of dank depressing weather of which the highlight was the fog and mist lifting to reveal low cloud and drizzle was a nice sight. The hoped for Owl on my evening dog walk did not oblige and no migrants were heard. So roll on the weekend for the chance of some birds.

  1. Hi Malc,
    I got home from work at just after midnight and while walking from the car to the front door was accompanied by a constant ‘seeeping’ of Redwings flying over low under the cloud base. Must have been hundreds. If only there was such a thing as hand held radar…..

    • Hi Steve,

      I was surprised I didn’t hear any as there seem to be so many around at the moment. I did hear some this morning.
      Paul Bowerman from Severside Birds uses Night Vision equipment. Don;t think that would have worked around here last night. I recently read something about migration tracking with radar in the Netherlands, can’t remember where I saw it though.

      Malcolm.
