A Taste of Spring

A great morning to be out early but little to report...birdwise. My highlight was a Green Woodpecker  on a telegraph pole!!
                                   Outside Riduna, the bungalow overlooking the Lagoon.

In late afternoon I took the 500mm for a 'walk' just to see if I could find some fodder for the blog.! Not a lot, but this is a record of what I saw...not very exciting I'm afraid!

 Mute Swan

Distant Flock of Brent Goose...they'll soon be gone to their breeding grounds.

Carrion Crow on the look out.

A splash caught my eye.....what was that?
It soon popped up... Great Crested Grebe in the main channel...against the light.

Curlew leaving the harbour.

Cormorant entering the harbour.

A pair of Wigeon coming into the harbour...far fewer of them about now.

...and that's it for another day.
