A Kingfisher on the Lagoon first thing this morning was a nice surprise...only fleetingly though!
A Blackbird watched from the notice board.
...and then flew to a gorse....
A pair of Ringed Plovers were watching me from the beach and looked anxious...a good sign, hopefully!
A single Red Breasted Merganser was patrolling the main channel and another two (females) were in the old entrance.
About 42 Brents were feeding in front of the hide and took flight whist I was watching....most seem to have departed and no doubt these will be here for only a few more days.
|On their way any day now.|
A visit to the North Wall was uneventful .... a few Wigeon remain by the sluice gate and about 48 Teal were scattered throughout the Breech Pool. A few Black Tailed Godwit and Snipe were present but as yet no Garganey or Little Ringed Plover. A Curlew was feeding close to the wall.
