What a difference a week makes!









Today was very dark and dismal with drizzle at times and mist. A complete contrast to last week when I was at Holbeck Hill.

We went to Filey Country Park where we saw Crows, Black Headed and Herring Gulls, Oyster Catchers, Turnstone, Knot and Dunlin on the grassland of the Park. We also saw a Kestrel and later it was eating a mouse or vole on top of a wooden waste bin. From the Brigg there was a lot of gulls on the water, Cormorants and distant divers I could not id with just my bins.

The highlight was a number of Fulmars wheeling out from the cliff parallel to the ledges they were on, low down below me. Great to see these birds again even in the gloom! I hope the pictures convey the atmosphere.

It changes the whole make-up of the scenery, the feel, yet the sun still shines beneath the dreary sky. We have had a couple of very gray days, and then the snow came last evening~ Alas, cold... though it does brighten the day a bit, even under the cover of clouds~
