A few migrants in the bushes

This morning had a distinctly Autumnal feel to it. The morning walk along the spit confirmed that Autumn was well on its way with five Wheatear, a few Willow Warblers and juvenile Whitethroats present in the gorse and the apple tree....always a magnet for migrants.

A rather tatty looking Blue Tit accompanied them.

 The tide was out and a Greenshank was calling in the distance whilst a Little Egret was feeding in front of the Spit Hide and a Curlew was enjoying a bath!

Preparing for the kill!

Job done and he was away!
