A Hot, Sultry Day

A quiet morning with just a single Willow Warbler and a Whitethroat showing up in the bushes. Three Peregrines on New Island ( 1 adult male and 2 juvs) . A flock of about 100 Dunlin flashed past me with that characteristic 'whoooosh' and a few Turnstones were present on the tideline. About 15 Little Terns still present on the church Norton Spit. The female Red Breasted Merganser still in the main channel and finding plenty of fish!
Apart from that very little to report on the bird front so how about a few images of the vegetation1.

There is much more Ragwort on the spit than ever before!

A few stands of Vipers Bugloss still looking good!

Teasles now coming into flower...this will attract the Goldfinches soon.
