Is summer coming or going?

Plenty of Common and Sandwich Terns moving west this morning; a few Swifts during the day. A common Sandpiper in the harbour and more Curlews present but little else of note. Yesterday morning a Great Spotted Woodpecker was attacking a fence post near the spit hide and again this morning it flew from somewhere near the Little Lagoon over my head towards Church Farm.

Stumbled upon a Ringed Plovers nest with 3 eggs on the beach...with fine weather now predicted (at last) coinciding with the start of school holidays I am not hopeful that it will have much peace.

Ringed Plovers  'nest' !
