Really wet day today, but did not stop the wheatears,never seen so many especially in the dunes they are everywhere in a variety of colours from the light first winter birds to the blue/black and white birds.Walking along the airfield fence came across a cuckoo,very flighty,never got within 75yds of it.Watched a short eared owl by gate 4 hunting in the rain,nice to see this time of year.Nice sunny day last Sunday,walked along the path from Redley Lane and saw my first stonechats,male and female,were very common two summers ago but scarce this year.
