The Peregrine returned late lunchtime but again failed to acquire pigeon upon which to dine, spectacular though. I eventually went for a brief slide up and down the track but added only Wren, Jackdaw and Song Thrush.

The corvid roost in next door's trees is approaching 500 now. They've just flown out and a good proportion are sitting in the neighbouring snowy field. Now slowly trickling back up into the Sycamores. I counted one flock of 42 Jackdaws fly in but I'm guessing at about twice that number in total and 400 or so Rooks.

Tomorrow, weather permitting I might go a-birding. Birsay beckons.
