Danny sent me through this image of a Bar tailed Godwit which he took last week while he was over, thanks Danny! The weather over here not so good, squally showers kicking around quite a lot.. By the way the tally for the rainfall for October was 6.95", just a little less than last October when we had 7".... Visitors from Edinburgh, over for the weekend were pleased to see the Goldfinches on our feeders this afternoon.
