Something new!

I have heard the call of a Little Ringed Plover during the past few days but not until this afternoon did I locate the bird on the shingle, adjacent to the 'old' car park. I was taken by surprise and managed a quick out of focus record shot  before it was disturbed by walkers.
I cannot recall ever seeing an LRP on the Spit before.

 A Skylark allowed a reasonably close approach.

More and more Wood Pigeons appear to be using the spit as a feeding ground....
I can only assume they are finding weed seeds.

Painted Ladies are becoming more frequent but most seem either quite worn or worn out from their Channel crossing and then resting on the beach.

...and finally two birds of a different kind....noisy ones!!

...regularly seen (and heard!) over the harbour
