I took a short wander down to the local burn to check the water levels this arvo. They were disappointingly low, but I did see a dipper - a first for that location  :thumbsup:

A kingfisher at Medmerry.  The tide was as high as I have ever seen it and it was foraging along the flanks of the sea defences.  Not the bird I was expecting to see - which was the first winter arrivals of Brent Geese - who were skulking in a large puddle in a field somewhere away from the sea.

Yes, not pleasant. Never seen a fox around here before.

A great flock of goose-/heron-sized birds flying in V formation from east to west.  MrsT pronounced them Swedish Cranes, IOW cranes.

Oh a croft, where the crofter would probably not be in the top 10 Most Pleasant Crofters 2023.

Something(s) were very active in my garden during the early hours of this morning.
As evidenced by  NOISES and my PIR floodlights having been activated for much of the latter part of night.
Couldn't find any evidence of what it might've been, before darkness fell this evening.

Any redwings or fieldfares yet?  I've missed them the last few years here in Lancashire.
