North Wall

I was greeted this morning by a nice surprise...a Short Eared Owl on top of a small hawthorn behind the Breech Pool along the North wall...........

Unfortunately I had only taken a smaller lens but here are some big crops..

Apart from that, a Pheasant on a fence...

and a Blackbird having a bath.

..and feeling better for it, obviously!

Earlier, on the Spit I checked to see if the Ringed Plover was still sitting on its nest in front of the hide....that was!!
I was relieved to note the plover was still there!

A sad sight but a necessary one.....wretched vandals, weekend party goers, rough sleepers etc.
The path leading to.... 
...a concrete slab!
It just doesn't look right as I look over to 'the other side' and the Church Norton chapel....sad!
It will be missed.
