In search of a Wheatear.

Out on the spit at 7.30 this morning but alas, for me no Wheatears, despite two being reported on the beach yesterday and another found shortly after my return. I disturbed a pair of Red Legged Partridges which flew back to the Church Norton side (as yesterday) and a Skylark was singing overhead...a real sign of Spring...
  A Ringed Plover was slightly agitated at my approach along the beach..

I decided to try for the North Wall but, again, no joy.

 A Gadwall was present on Breech pool...
...and the usual selection of birdlife was feeding along Whites Creek
Drake Wigeon

A fishing Heron

and the regular Spotted Redshank.
A Kingfisher zipped up from the sluice and quickly disappeared but apart from that nothing to get the adrenolin running....nevertheless, a very pleasant wander!
