New Years Eve

A brisk wind this morning and a much cooler feel to the day than of late!

Thirteen Mediterranean Gulls on the Lagoon...later in the day there were 31.

...and unusually a drake Shoveler

and a drake Red Breasted Merganser
plus the usual Tufted Ducks (I had a Scaup/Tufted Hybrid on Christmas Eve which was subsequently seen by several observers on Boxing Day causing much discussion, as hybrids always do! )
Red Breasted Mergansers flying up the main channel

Wigeon and a Curlew sheltering from  the wind.

The Church Norton Spit was breached in the night and again this afternoon...
Quite an impressive sea!
