On a short leave prior to visiting Europe -
Not much in the way of birds to report but a walk around the Deer Park at HOOK north west of Dale in leiu of an intended visit to Skommer and Gannets. The Island was storm bound by 50knot winds but the walk gave some interesting views of Atlantic Grey seals on the beaches below the cliffs. Have thrown a few other interesting images in the mix to add to the flavour of the day.
