A Swift Gropper!

Another day of strong westerly winds, though mild, but with a couple of heavy rain showers this morning. A brief pre-meeting visit to the Reserve was rewarded with a very fleeting glimpse of a Grasshopper Warbler, reeling away happily from the depths of a Hawthorn, then diving into a clump of reeds. This afternoon, a Swift flew west past the beach, making good headway into the gale!

A considerably better view than today's, but they all count!

So, despite less than ideal conditions, that's 10 new species in the last 3 days! Hopefully this will keep going for another week or so!
