Back in the Black

Can't beat a bit of (almost) AC/DC!
We got to Patch 1 just as the first glimmer of light was dawning after a breezy drizzly night. The pleasant waft of cooking chocolate from the nearby biscuit factory was hanging in the air, that means a southerly wind – a better direction than yesterday’s westerly hooley. The birds had improved too with 24 Blackbirds, 14 Robins, 5 Wrens but zero Dunnocks (still too dark for them to have woken up I guess) no Redwings either, counted today.
No chance of a shuffy over patch 2 this morning – beyond-torrential rain and a few flickers of lightening close overhead so the safari gave it a miss. Didn’t fancy sitting at my desk dripping like a soggy rag for the rest of the morning. Lunchtime visit may be better…it wasn’t! Disappointing as not far away up the coast there was some decent stuff about.
Where to next? Still hoping for somewher a bit drier.
In the meantime let us know what's getting struck by lightening in your outback.
Sorry - no pic again today - must try harder!
