 Its that Black Brant again from the Spit hide before the fog moved in at 8.30am...

It really stands out from the other Brents!

...showing off that triangular neck band and the diagnostic white flash.
The fog didn't clear 'til after midday and then it was sunny all the afternoon. A report came up on Birdguides that a Little Gull was present on Ivy Lake Chichester so that was a good excuse to get out. The gull was way over the other side of the lake and only record shots were possible...

It was easier to pick out whilst in flight as it showed its characteristic dark underwing.

..apologies for qualiy (itwas a long way off)

   I watched a Cormorant diving repeatedly to get a large underwater twig which it eventually hauled out and then made off wth it!

..and finally

...aggresive Greylag...from behind

..and in front!
