Strumble Diary 11/5/17 Murky Porpoises

I was not going to go to Strumble because after several days of sunshine it was drizzly and murky but then Adrian rang me to say there was a red footed Falcon at Strumble. It was what we birders call a "lifer" a first. After 40 odd years of birdwatching that does not happen often, especially on my home turf so I had to go. and see it. I did see it (thanks Adrian!) but as I was there I decided to try and get some pics for the blog. 
Not brilliant and it was awfully murky but lots of porps on the ebbing tide and a few record shots to prove it !
