The morning started off sunny  but as soon as I reached the North Wall the clouds rolled in and the birds were not performing well! The Brents were  constantly on the move....
 and the only birds of interest on the Breach Pool were a drake Pintail and a Shoveler (too far away for a photo)...
Drake Pintail...he will soon be gone!
A few Black Tailed Godwits were feeding ....
..this one turning into summer plumage.
Later in the day back in the harbour, in late afternoon sunshine, a few Curlews were flying out to sea

Curlews, flying out to sea.

Whilst a Cormorant flew in from the sea

On the wires, a Starling in summer plumage

Whilst another was looking for a suitable nest site in a beach front bungalow.
...and so ends another day....but things are on the change. When will the first Wheatear turn up or a Sand Martin perhaps .It can't be long now!
