Tweet of the day.

As the featured bird on BBC Radio 4 this morning was the Ringed Plover it seemed appropriate to put my 'patch' bird on the blog!

So here it is...still protecting its single offspring of a few days old.

The single youngster looks very vulnerable as it peers out from the beach at the wide world beyond!
Apart from that a fairly quiet morning with just a few terns fishing in the harbour.

Common Tern looking great against the approaching storm clouds.

...another shot showing the diagnostic bright red bill with black tip.
Sandwich Tern with bill with yellow tip!
Later in the day ...a tailless Blackbird....a sure indication of the end of the breeding season...summer is going fast!
