Storm Doris

23rd of February 2017. Weather:  heavy rain , storm force winds 80mph at peak north westerly direction

A  trip to the lighthouse at the peak of the storm was quite a risky prospect, It soon became apparent that it was more powerful than we have experienced in a while, 

Kerr's field was the first port of call, the surprise was the lack of gulls with only 2 Black Headed Gull and 1 Herring Gull  present, 20 plus Redshank and the 12 Canada Geese that were in the Lingham lane paddocks yesterday, all the birds were wisely lying in a prone position 

                                                              Kerr's field

With the weather fast deteriorating a quick look over the seawall was easier said than done .
The new stable blown over 
 With conditions set to ease maybe a birding gem or two will turn up over the next few days
