The Little Lagoon
This week has been rather uneventful and, for the past two days, the beach has been shrouded in fog. The highlights, such as they were.... on Monday, just before darkness fell a fine male Pheasant ran along the beach just in front of our bungalow...rather unusual! On Thursday there was a mass exodus of Brent Geese; flocks were heading out of the harbour and then flying out to sea gaining height and then turning east into the distance.
On Friday the fog descended and an Eider Duck made an appearance in the harbour mouth.
A pair of Red Breasted Mergansers were nearby...here is the male (through the mist)
A newly arrived Chiffchaff was feeding on the beach in the Valerian ...obviously very hungry after his/her channel crossing.
|A lone Skylark sat hunched on a post.|
|Black Headed Gull looking miserable.|
My highlight today was a first for the garden tick list...a Meadow Pipit close up through the window. (Probably got lost in the fog)
Apologies for such a rotten lot of photos.
Hopefully normal service will be resumed next week if the fog lifts!
Looking towards the beach bungalows this afternoon. Not ideal conditions for birding or photography!
