Time is moving on...

....and 2 Swallows were a bit of a surprise this morning as they flew east past the Lagoon. With a temperature of 14c at 8.30 this morning and with the trees still in leaf it is not surprising these two were somewhat confused.
A Rock Pipit accompanied a Pied Wagtail at the harbour entrance as a  Seal headed into the harbour.

Later in the day I walked to the salthouse on the North Wall and as the tide was receding  noticed high numbers of Ringed Plovers and Dunlins. Lapwings and Golden Plovers were the most numerous waders but Curlews, Black Tailed Godwits and Grey Plovers were well spread throughout the harbour. Brent Geese numbers have grown considerably during this week and Wigeon and Teal are present on the Lagoon and in the harbour. A few Pintails are about but as yet I have not seen any Goldeneye....we need some cold weather!

A single Spotted Redshank was feeding in Whites Creek.
