Bank holiday hazards!

I am so pleased today is a 'normal' day! Yesterday was SO busy that the birds really didn't have a chance. People,dogs, wind surfers and worst of all kite surfers! Just look at the above image showing just a few of the surfers just in front of the specially protected area for the Little Terns nesting site. They are skittish birds at the best of times but they don't take kindly to these massive intruders flying so close! On my 'round' this morning I didn't see a single Little Tern...maybe I was just unlucky but time will tell. The wretched resident Carrion Crow was also searching the area looking for food....probably eggs! You can gather I am rather depressed this morning.
