Sunday saw some actual almost proper weather when I could get at it at last at last at last......
Unlike today, when definite proper weather turns up on a work day. Booo hiss etc. etc.
Anyways, I toddled down to the Nose and had a look to see what I could see.
And less than three hours later I gave up due to sunshine and imminent jets.
This is not to say the weather was universally sunny, just that it had noticed me and was feeling capricious;
I don't know what deal the organisers of the air show did with the Dark Powers to arrange the weather so neatly, but it certainly worked.
In the meanwhile, however, I actually saw some birds! Woo! A Balearic and 126 Manx went south, as did 8 Common Scoter [one of which was very big!], my first non-Sarnie tern of the year went north, as did a white-winged gull which was probably a Med but might have been one of those nasty BHGs [not a great view, tbh]. Gannets, Kitts and Fulmars were moving, with an interesting Fulmar in a very tatty state, with a dark rear end but alas tail matched coverts.. [Keep checking..]
Closer to, the Ore Stone colony is in full swing, with Razorbills again in the Cave Of Doom - adult seen heading in with bill full of Sand Eels!
On shore, birds included juvie Rockits and Ravens.
Not just birds on land, either;
Ok, time for the noisy stuff!
Yes, second day of low-flying shenanigans, and just to show you it wasn't all Arrows and Typhoon, here's something different!!!
Not only, but also;
Ok, enough of that, here's what you wanted;
And of course, it wouldn't be a proper show without some serious waaaaaaaaaaaaaaargh!
Again, not so much Exit, Stage left-, as Exit through the Gods, pursuing Bear.. :D
Ok, that'll do.
Be Seeing You..
