Another nest

I stumbled upon a Ringed Plovers nest this morning just above the high tide mark....its not really a 'nest' rather a 'scrape' in the pebbles...People and dogs were wandering along the beach so I'm not too hopeful about sucess.

A really obliging male Linnet posed on a branch for me and again I am pretty certain there was a nest nearby.
Turnstone numbers are beginning to build up and there were a few Dunlins in summer plumage feeding with them.
Sand Martins in small flocks were heading west along the shoreline.
