Rockfast Rook

Well what did I see at 1300hrs today?
The nine PBP residents i.e Mute Swan, Canada Goose,Mallard,Coot,Moorhen, Herring Gull, Black-headed Gull, Raven and Pied Wagtail were joined on the Pool by a Lesser Black-backed Gull bobbing on the pools wavelets and a Grey Heron over by the far reeds.
The Beach and Bay yielded up a duo of Oystercatchers sheltering from the cold wind out towards Spit.

St Andrews Pool saw the little woodland birds out in smallish numbers.... They were joined by a Song Thrush and Wren in the Swamp Area and the Rook that was feeding at the Cafe and refused to move even when I got within eight feet of him. The Pool itself had only the usual residents.

So the answer is.....nothing unusual.
