Perhaps the day started off dry, but mid morning it took a nosedive and it has rained and rained and rained again, well over an inch has fallen with obviously flooding with water coming off the high ground... This morning there were around 100 Whoopers down at Rockside and this evening there were around 40 along at Sunderland on the stubble there. The bird table has been busy making the most of the food available. There were a few Golden Plover at Ballinaby earlier on. Not much sign of any Owls out on the wing this evening, with this wet weather, I don't think there would be much prey out anyway!
