Just like buses!

I have been expecting to see my first Wheatear on the beach for the past week but not a sign.
This morning outside the bungalow my first ! As I wandered up to the hide another on the path and then on the metalwork by the hide a third! A stonking male.....
Male Wheatear.
The Iceland Gull was on the beach at 7.00am. and later returned to the Lagoon. I couldn't resist taking a few more pictures at 3.45p.m.  as its in my 'patch' wont be here for ever!

...and for good measure an ever present Tufted Duck
