A superb morning

Sunrise from the patio

After a moonlit night dawn was just perfect! No wind,dry,bright and not too cold! A quick visit to the harbour entrance revealed that the Slavonian Grebe was still present. After breakfast it was time to check on the North Wall and besides the huge numbers of Black Tailed Godwits, Wigeon and Teal 7 Bearded Tits spiralled upwards, 'pinging' as they headed north east...a real treat. Brent Geese numbers have increased dramatically and the shot below shows just part of a huge flock on a field near the sewage treatment works where a Black Redstart was present along with the Pied Wagtails
