The morning dawned bright and sunny....but windy, again. A small bird darted across the Lagoon and landed on an overhanging branch...a fair distance from where I was standing...a real little jewel of a bird................
Kingfisher in the early morning sunshine.
What a start to the day...three minutes from my front door!
I headed towards the Spit hide and just sat and admired the many wader flocks moving around the harbour as the tide rose. Nothing unusual but here are a few shots just for the record...

One of the many wader flocks constantly changing position

Mixed flock of Dunlin, Knot and Grey Plover

Closer views as they swept past the hide

A pleasant quarter of an hour to start the day!
