Another brilliant sunny morning...

So, at 6.50am I set off to the North Wall.

A Willow Warbler was singing alongside the Lagoon, a Whimbrel flew overhead, Grey Plovers were calling in the harbour, Black Tailed Godwits were wheeling to and fro and a couple of Sand Martins were fly catching over the Breech Pool. Sedge Warblers  and a few Reed Warblers  were singing in the reedbed, Cettis Warblers were calling from their hideouts and I heard my first Whitethroat. It was magic!!!

Here are a few photos (not in any particular order)...Herons were putting on quite a display, hence a few extra pics!

 ...and now for the Herons...bird of the day!!

My first Whitethroat of the year...a bit distant.

 Chaffinch...often overlooked, but still a handsome bird!

Back on the beach...a Wheatear.
That's it for today, folk!
