A better day!
A much improved day weatherwise and the light was good for photography. A group of Turnstones were foraging on the tide line and I was able to get slightly below them and secure an almost eye level shot of one. The bright orangy/yellow legs often get lost when taking shots looking down on them when they are in weed so I was pleased to get this!
I had also heard there were some Goosanders about so a quick look round soon found them near the harbour entrance albeit a bit distant...however a record shot!
Numbers of Brent Geese are really picking up now and there is a Goldeneye on the Lagoon.
The Black Necked Grebe continues to attract a number of visiting birders.
