A weather eye on Plex

Persistent rain and a strengthening south easterly buffetted the car, with the weather getting more intense as this morning progressed – perfect conditions for Dotterel on Plex, right time, right place etc.

Shame no one told the Dotterels.

At least four of the Golden Plovers still in the stubble past Getterns, although they were flighty today, and the rain had grounded up to ten Wheatears.

Over 300 Common Gulls scattered across the ploughed fields (317 to be exact Common Gull fans) and a few Corn Buntings mangling the concept of song, as the footwell slowly filled up with Lancashire rain.

Whenever you’re ready…
