A bright,sunny,windless morning for a change!!

A wander along to the Breech Pool in the sunshine brought its rewards but the highlight was a high flying Spoonbill going west...unfortunately I spotted it too late to get even a record snap. The Golden Plovers looked resplendent in the sunshine and as they twisted and turned before alighting. They really are 'special'.

Really showing their golden uppers.

About to alight.
Another bird I can't resist photographing is the Stonechat and one has taken up residence in front of  the caravans for most of the winter...

This is a particularly confiding bird!

What a stunner!
Great to hear more and more song as the days lengthen...

this Dunnock was particularly vocal this morning...

He's really belting it out here!
A Goldcrest was flitting about in a hawthorn near Slipe Field..

Eyeing me, upside down!
...and finally a Rock Pipit
