The Starlings are starting to develop their winter (can't believe we've mentioned the 'W' word already) spotty plumage. Plenty of juveniles around too.
A flight of five Dunlins went south. At Pipit Slab two Swallows buzzed the clifftops but the weather wasn't bringing many insects out for them. Soaked through by now in the grey murk. Pipit Slab is up to the right just off shot.
The walk back produced a 'mega' ...one Sandwich Tern...as mega as that! Then a Gannet close inshore. As if by magic a glint of sunlight from somewhere picked out another dazzling white speck way out on the horizon.
Almost back to the start we spotted two male House Sparrows very interested in something under the overhangs on the rocks.No idea what it was they were after; insects hiding in the nooks and crannies or salts washing out of the stones.
