look at that mealy moulying

as they say on Shetland. Think that might be something to do with fulmars though, of which I saw none today. Did finally catch up with the Connonnagh mealy redpoll, which was nice! Had cracking views of it on the bird table and up in the trees around the garden this afternoon, while child number 2 slept in the car, blissfully unaware. Sometimes sneaky twitches work out grand!

Also gleaned another year tick this morning, when I spotted a merlin hunting over the fields by the house (67). Moving along nicely now.
