An early morning Wheatear
As I strolled round the harbour at about 8.45 this morning I almost trod on a Wheatear! It flew a few feet in front of me and stayed still for several minutes near a clump of sea kale and enabled me to get a reasonable photo before flying up to the ironwork when I was able to obtain another shot in the early morning sunshine.A couple of Sandwich Terns drifted over and the usual Peregrines were preening on New Island...a perfect morning,sunny, warm and windless and on passing the lagoon I noticed a Kingfisher perched on an overhanging bramble.Superb!
Later in the morning 2 Spotted Redshanks on Breach Pool.
