A bright and sunny morning on the Spit.

I was greeted by Shelducks this morning with a pair on the Little Lagoon and another pair on the main path to the hide.

You need to be up early to see these birds on the path....before the dog walkers!
They are quite skittish birds always on the lookout...

...and soon made off
...allowing a couple of close flypasts!

An Egret was on the Little Lagoon...
and a Grey Heron flew over..
whilst a Meadow Pipit fed in the grass.

The Ringed Plover is still sitting on her nest although the growth has partly obscured her and makes it difficult to see ...
Part of the 27+ non breeding Mute Swans loafing in the shallows
A striking male Linnet sang from a branch near his nest

..and then I came face to face with a female Blackbird intent on building her nest despite my presence!
 Birds are busy at present!
