I learn my lessons so today dressed like an onion in thermal trousers, ski-vest, T-shirt, jumper, fleece, windproof layer etc.... So cold even the birds were keeping a low profiles. I have to admire the resilience of the gulls that seem to thrive on biting winds. And not forgetting the lapwings who continue with their buffetting displays, their broad wings mastering the wind.
Our score, without much thanks to me, was 77 species (down on last year's 89).
