A May Morning

A superb sunny morning but a chilly N/Easter!

3 Male Wheatears and a single female near the spit hide. A mixed flock of Dunlin (in summer plumage) and Ringed Plovers on the mudbank. Turnstones turning they do! A couple of Little Terns and a few Whimbrel in flight. About 16 Linnets feeding and exploring the gorse and a Carrion Crow sitting on a single egg on its nest.

The nest and single egg of the Carrion Crow.

A Lesset Whitethroat singing from deep inside a bush near the Lagoon.

Quiet but pleasant.
Later in the day on Breech Pool 2 Drake Garganey showing well towards back of pool and reports of 2 Wood Sandpipers and 2 Little Ringed Plovers.
