Filey Country Park

A few pictures from Filey CP last Saturday afternoon when the weather was bright one minute black the next.

Get out the car to take a picture in bright light and you got bown away with bitter wind, add rain and sleet/hail down your neck!

It was high ide and a flock of Knot with a few Dunlin kept flying around and coming to rest in the centre of the park. There is a circular access road and the birds kept landing in the grassed area in the middle.

I pursued a lone Rewing and got soaked and no picture for my trouble.

Quite like the Herring Gull and Black Headed Gull shots from the car.

Knot and Dunlin were then in good numbers feeding on the grassed area, plenty of wet pools in the location.

Hi Mike,
A nice birding day, isn't it... And you have very nice pictures of bird. I wish we had the same light as the one you got over here, but winter is still there...

Thanks for visiting again Chris.
The waether has been miserable here today. At the weekend I traveled the area locally and got nothing, we headed off to the Moors, too much snow , came back weather very grey. Disappointing.

Thanks for your comments on my zenfolio site Mike. The light at Alkborough was just right. The birds were spooked would you beleive by a low flying Kingfisher.
We came up to Wykeham for Valentines day and stayed at the Downe Arms. Who says romance is dead.
