Still there....................


The Gyrfalcon was still there. I hadn't seen it since early March and had been back 2 times unsuccessfully. I was surprised to read on other blogs it was still around...........

We had just missed it consuming an unfortunate immature gull. It was just sat around in the grass.....................


It was a cold windy day (it snowed quite a lot later) and I don't blame it for hunkering down out of the wind.....................










It eventually flew off..................first onto a nearby stick..............



and then to destination unkown...........................



Quite a few ducks and grebes on the sea and in the ports (finally), a few Rook in Ono, a flock of Waxwing near my flat a few days ago, some migrating swans in the sky................despite the snow and the chill the seasons are changing...............

Linked to Wild Bird Wednesday.
