Getting a little bored of the persistent driving drizzle and rain all day everyday of late. At least I’m not on an island out in the North Sea being battered from all directions though. (http://farnephoto.blogspot.com/).
This week I have mostly been building dry-stone walls with intermittent brew breaks to dry off.

All’s quiet on the bird front (as usual) a few fieldfares (largest flock of around 300) have been regular on the trails. Distant views of a Merlin last night came while on a Hen Harrier roost watch up by Hadrian’s Wall.
Heading up Coldfell (the highest point on the reserve) tomorrow to inspect a fence and investigate some rogue sheep wanderings, so hope for better weather.
