cliffs of the Little Orme, Great tit singing, Greenfinch, house sparrow, long-tailed tit, red-throated diver, Robin, textures in landscape
When the wind blows and sunlight slides slowly around the bulk of the Little Orme textures and patterns are revealed on surfaces that may go unnoticed in any other season when the sun is higher in the sky.
BIRDS AMONGST TANGLES OF TWIGS
Great Tit singing

And a glimpse of a Long-tailed Tit
Intriguing that you should mention Peregrines being absent. Weird, considering that the opportunities afforded to us when we head each Summer to the North Cornish coast where there are allegedly some 50 pairs in residence. It may well be that they are having fewer feeding opportunities, should the seabird populations also be suffering. A fine ole balance in nature and no small wonder things are rosy one minute and not so, the next.
I’m glad you have good memories, we did a brief sea-watch from there a couple of weeks ago but at the moment you’d risk getting blown right off the cliff! Haven’t seen a peregrine here for a good while. Best wishes, Theresa

You just brought back some lovely memories of one of my favourite places. I love sitting on top of the Orme with a pair of binoculars watching the seabirds and the occasional peregrine.
