A quiet Autumn

A couple of recent visits to my local nature reserve ,Tophill Low, have proved to be pretty quiet.

Apart from a very brief sighting of the local Dog Otter there was not too much to see.

I suspect the mild autumn and lack of easterly winds have delayed the influx of migrants who will hopefully arrive later.

A family visit to Scarborough did give a pleasant surprise with both a Black Necked Grebe and a Little Auk seen in the harbour area.

Hopefully December will be a little more fruitful in terms of photos !
