Here are two of the uncropped shots of that memorable morning...
....and these are two cropped shots
...for a split second it fanned its tail.
So this morning I thought a return visit to the very spot would be appropriate. Going via the Halsey Farm entrance to check on the Squacco Heron I was disappointed on a 'no show'. However there were 3 Cattle Egrets in the trees bounding the 'favoured field' but little else.

But at Owl Point, not even a warbler of any kind...so no repeat of the excitement of 3 years ago.
Here are a few shots of a visit to the harbour on August 6...
|Coming down the rife.|
|An odd looking leucistic Starling...|
when at first seen I thought it was going to be a Yellow Wagtail considering the company it was keeping.
|Wheatear on North Wall|
|Oystercatcher involved in dirty work.|
|Grey Plover close to the North wall|
...in stunning summer plumage...great!
Little Egret with small fry.
Here's hoping for a good Autumn migration...I've already dipped out on the Osprey that's been around for a few days!
