A Change in the Weather

After the very warm calm weather of the past week or so, this morning felt very different...cooler and VERY gusty!

Six Common Sandpiper had arrived on the Lagoon and more Curlews were present on the salt flats. A small Grey Seal was fishing in the harbour mouth .

The Swallow was brooding in the hide despite interference yesterday with more flaps opened and the door left swinging...why can't people just accept that the birds need peace and quiet.

Little else to report except there were at least 2 Little Ringed Plovers and 2 Black Tailed Godwits on Breach Pool. The farmer was cutting and rolling the adjacent field right up to the edge of the water and Moorhens, Coots and Lapwings with young birds were fleeing for their lives...hopefully with no casualties but I wouldn't be certain.
