Where there's a will there's a Waites


Another morning of grey sludge in the sky, and that is called dawn. Not a pretty one.


Another morning noting birds on the eyot from the Waites wall opposite.


Still missing is song thrush, but present - and countercalling at that- were Cetti's warblers. Otherwise the obious gap was wood pigeon.


The most exciting birds? A pied wagtail: new to the remote watching list, though seen on the eyot itself most days if visiting in person. I'm not sure what the group term for 4 different cormorants would be: a gulp of perhaps? Anyway, singly they flew, but seemed to meet for a quick chat off the end of the island, then off again individually.
