The smaller things in life......

A strong and cold Northerly breeze means there are no seabirds on the cliffs today (give it a few weeks and you will not be able to get them off the cliffs).

Not much in North the more sheltered South Valley there were a couple of Chiffchaffs and three Goldcrest - always a delight to watch flicking around the bushes with their high-pitched call. Peregrine in the garden this morning.

The nights are darker (late rising moon and not a full moon) which means there are more Manxies being heard and seen on land - still no cacophony, that really kicks off in April as the Male birds are defending prized burrows.
