North Wall....just to check on the 'hoodie'

Late morning as the light improved I wandered down to the North Wall and a group of birders was peering down Whites channel. The Hooded Merganser was fishing  but it was a long way off and views against the light were not particularly good..

Making my way alongside Breech Pool another group of birdwatchers were admiring the Snipe

..some of the Snipe feeding
and preening
  and the ever present Black Tailed Godwits.......

 Returning to the Salthouse the Hooded Merganser had got a lot closer and before very long it was swimming and feeding with the Wigeon giving good views.

 ...The Wigeon made photography difficult and the bird remained for only a short time before moving up the channel again.
