Windiest October Day

This month we've had storms Amelia, Brian and ex hurricane Ophelia but none of them matched Saturday’s high wind speed of 30mph. In fact, it's the first time I've recorded a gust of 30mph in October since starting my records in 2009.

Saturday was dull and windy in complete contrast to Friday which was sunny and calm. We made the most of Friday and had an afternoon walk around RSPB Old Moor.
Most of the "water" birds did their usual trick of staying well out of easy photographic reach but I managed a half decent shot of a wren and bullfinch around the bird feeders near the visitor centre.
The plan for Saturday had been to get a bit more tidying up done at the allotment but the gale force wind put us off and we decided to wait for some better weather.


  1. That's strong wind! Beautiful bird photos!

    1. I was just a bit lucky with the bird photos. It’s often windy in autumn so we are used to it. I still don’t like windy weather though.
