Hot Stuff

We are in for a hot weekend but will it bring hot birds
Maybe a Honey Buzzard or a Bridled Tern or our first Balearic Shearwater of the year
Things were quiet in the Obs with a sea like glass and a light breeze but plenty of Shearwaters were passing to keep the interest
Mark joined me again this morning and i left him counting the Manxies
