A busy week

Christmas week has been busy with little time for birding ...a brief walk to the harbour on a very cold morning a couple of days ago  gave views of the usual waders and duck species plus good views of 5 Avocet, a seal in the harbour entrance and a dead fox on the shore line.
A quick sortie at high tide this afternoon produced nothing unusual but the light was superb and gave an opportunity to get a couple of good images of Turnstone, Ringed Plover and Grey Plover along the high tide mark... a small Knot flock was roosting on the Church Norton extended shingle spit.


The Knot flock

...and  a Very Happy Christmas to all of you!!!
