Ah, it's good to be back home on the range, where the weather is benign and mild. I've missed a load of rare birds (Desert Wheatear, Siberian Stonechat, Red-Flanked Bluetail and a very popular Green Heron) but they've all passed on or passed away now, leaving the regular autumn cast.
The female Kestrel was active with some prey - it appears to be a bat.
The male looked on with distain, or maybe envy.
There were two Black Redstarts (a female above, and a more elusive male), a female Stonechat, nine Curlews on the rocks and five surprisingly-early-returning Fulmars.
A lone Swallow also flew over, and - if the current weather is a guide to the rest of the winter - it may as well save its energy and stay in Britain.
