At last, the rain and wind has relented....

..and I was able to get out!

 There was little of real excitement to get the adrenolin racing but Kestrels are always good to photograph!

 As I wandered down the east side of the harbour along the shoreline my attention was caught by the distinctive flight of a pair of Ruddy Shelducks...

They eventually settled down with the 'common' Shelducks

Canada Geese on the Breach Pool
...and a sleepy Great Crested Grebe on the the Lagoon.
Little else of note but a flock of Lapwing was joined by 30-40 Grey Plover over the harbour.

On my final walk of the day  around the spit, in the late afternoon, a pair of Stonechats were fly catching from a bush...light too poor to capture.
