Boiler Breakdown

Well it seems like lots f things are breaking down at the moment. Firstly this week it was the coffee maker (always a bad thing ... got to have coffee in the morning). Yesterday it was the central heating boiler. The good news is I can get some chores done, the bad news for you another blog post.

Danish Scurvygrass
(Cochlearia danica)
Although I expected some red on stalks


Caught and Ringed Sandvatn, Iceland 08/2009
Observed Caerlaverock, UK 03/2011

Early morning, poor light. Lots of these (50+) Druridge

Highlights of the week included Sand Martins, increased numbers of Chiffchafffs, Sandwich Tern, Manx Shearwater and Water Pipit.

Amazing colours on this Meadow Pipit (almost Red-throated like).

Hairy Bitter-cress

Still hanging on 6 at burnmouth on Thursday (24th), plus Twite

Pacific Diver was missing for a few days before I spotted this. Turns out this is a Greylag goose. A report on DBCP and at Blyth proved to be inconclusive and so it is likely the Diver has simply headed off.
