St bees

Keith and I had the morning checking the headland at St Bees, not much really going on. First birds were Linnets, then a flock of around 15 Tree Sparrow, most ive seen here for a good while. 7 Whooper Swans flew North, a Fieldfare, Song Thrush and a male Stonechat near the Lighthouse, loads of Meadow Pipits all along the walk. A Couple of Rock Pipits were near the cliffs and then on the water a Guillemot a flock of 12 Razorbills, 20+ Kittiwakes and the usual gulls. A Porpoise showed close a few times.
In Fleswick bay the Primroses were out, a Grey Wagtail showed nicely as did 3 more Rock Pipits another Song Thrush and a couple more Stonechats.

Finally the walk back produced, a flock of Jackdaw with 1 Eastern type, 5 Stock Doves, 3 Goldcrest, and a few Blackbirds so there was a mini fall of birds. Final bird a nice spot by Keith was a Common Snipe really close and keeping as still as possible. So no great birds just a nice mixture.

Lastly tried for the Yellow Legged Gull again but it wasnt there...
