The wind the last few days has been ridiculous, I can just about put up with the wind when birding on Shetland or when it's smacking out of the east and drizzly in Sept/Oct but I find birding in spring frustrating enough anyway with all the leaves on the trees making it harder to see stuff, most days seem to be one bird days unless there's a bit of passage to get stuck into.  So it turned out on Sat, I missed a Monty's that went through really early in the morning just as I was getting up and the only other bird of note really was this cracking drake Ortolan.
