I could only manage a dodgy outing to the quarry today (Sunday) as Saturday was a washout. Today I wasn't much better cycling into a peak wind speed of 24 mph seemed hard going and wishing I hadn't agreed to do my birding by bike rather then car...only a month to go and the bet is over.....maybe.
There wasn't much going on at the quarry, given the poor light and wind hardly a surprise.
A few Redwing at the entrance, a mini flock of Pied Wagtail (6), a fly over Buzzard was seriously low but up against a dark grey sky meant it might as well be doing cartwheels. A single Snipe was also present. But the quarry was so quiet I didn't even locate many common species such as Dunnock...proper bad visit.
