On the Spit again.

A wander round the Spit was somewhat uneventful but the Ringed Plover I discovered sitting on a nest last evening was still there this morning....
 It is in a very vulnerable position and I estimate its chance of being successful is nil, knowing the disturbance it is likely to endure.

Little else was on the spit but here are a few photos of 'the usuals'...

Female Blackbird
Blackbird in typical 'listening' or is it 'watching' mode?
Definitely 'watching'!
Nice to see the Linnets now in resplendent summer plumage

Male Greenfinch feeding on seed heads.
A hovercraft was skimming over the mudflats stopping from time to time to take samples...presumably the EA.

In the evening a Cuckoo was calling from a bush on Pagham first this year and a real sound of Spring!!
