Ballard undercliff

Quick walk to the top of Ballard first. A few Song Thrush about but pretty quiet

Decided to do the undercliff from the Swanage end. Very pleasant indeed here in the sunshine and sheltered from the north wind.
At least 2 Black Redstarts wintering here.

Second bird

Surprised to see this Peacock flying up and down the beach in between settling on the pebbles

Passing Herring Gull wing
