The last few hours of the 'indian summer'

It was a superb morning and with a bad forecast for the rest of the week I felt a visit to  to the North Wall and Breech Pool was essential! I wasn't disappointed as the early morning light was great for a few photos.
There were c50 Golden Plover on the mud in Whites Creek

The one footed Black Tailed Godwit that has become a resident by the sluice gate

A confiding Brent Goose quite separate from the other flocks that are building up on a daily basis

A Little Egret catching the sunlight looking brilliant against the dark background

 A single Yellowhammer mingled in with with a collection of Reed Buntings

Flocks of Lapwing are growing
