Comings and goings.

The Brent Geese are starting to arrive....
..but only in small numbers at present although the winter duck have been growing in numbers during September with Teal and  Wigeon predominating.

A pair of Wigeon in front of the Spit Hide. 
Wheatears   have been moving through in considerable numbers and a pair this morning were feeding along the beach...
Here is one on a marker post.
