The wind has been very strong and gusting for the past few days but it doesn’t seem to affect the gulls who maintain their graceful flight as they fly in and out, gliding, swooping and diving with apparent ease. They even maintain great decorum when they come in to land, although it does look like a lot of extra effort is sometimes required.

A short Sunday stroll down by the non-river was fairly uneventful – wrong time of day entirely – but I did manage to get a few reasonable shots of Goldfinch, gulls and…not much else.
The Carpenter Bees were making the most of the hot weather, diving into what seems to be one of their favourite blooms. Probably a good job they tend to be solitary critters as a swarm would definitely be a bit on the intimidating side.
