The downs and ups of birding!

A glorious morning....warm, sunny and windless. But...the bad news...the Ringed Plovers nest has been robbed with all 4 eggs gone. No egg shells and no evidence as to the robber. I suspect the local pair of Crows.

A visit to North Wall for some photography proved interesting with a hybrid Scaup/Pochard

A pair of Long Tailed Tits busy in the bushes.

A few Whimbrel in the fields .

A family of Coots feeding some very young is one

Sedge Warblers and numerous Reed Warblers in the reeds...where else!

One of two Little ringed Plovers at the back of Breech Pool

A Wheatear on a fence post on the Spit
... and the bird list in the Salthouse from Tuesday 11th May
