Nice one Gerty....

A Raven in off was the only bird of note on this mornings sea watch. Gertrude looked wonderful but often its the day after the storm that matters. I picked up a large black raptor? fighting its way ashore, was it a Buzzard sp or a Harrier sp, it gave itself up as a Raven. A quality bird and a canny year tick
Sadly i was on my own and this is was i saw in order of appearance
