I am sure they must forage low in the shelter of the bushes also don't you think?
Often the wind seems to be blowing rather faster than they can fly

I'm guessing that the mean wind speed would perhaps have the greater effect rather than individual gusts. But does thier behaviour change at all in the face of storms and wind, and if so, for how long? There aren't so many flying around today because it's raining like a great big wet rainy thing - but they can't stay holed up indefinately. What if it rains like this for a week?
