First of all a Grey Plover on the Little Lagoon along with the usual Redshank, Little Grebes, Teal, Tufted Ducks and Mallards.
|Grey Plover...different lighting creates a different look. See below|
|Reed Bunting...one of dozens|
|Yellowhammer....fantastic birds...especially in the sunshine|
|Wren (Troglodytes troglodytes...such a great name)|
... and then a Chiifchaff...probably over wintering..a mere glimpse but just time to get one poor shot!
Last but not least a Pied Wagtail posed on a weed covered post...just perfect!

It was good to note on the computer at 7.00am this morning that the tug, Handfast left Falmouth Harbour and made for the quarry a few miles to the west. At 10.00am it set off and headed east and later in the afternoon I noted it was about 20 miles south of Polperro traveling at 4.4 knots.
Work continued on the beach shifting rocks as more liner had been delivered in the morning and enabled work to carry on.
|Stocks of lining had run low last week but now all was well and work could continue|
|Checking the height of the revetment|
|Progress as at 3.00 pm this afternoon|
Handfast Tug passing Plymouth at 6.30p.m...its on its way...slowly!
