Another newcomer!

Whilst this bird has been seen during the past few days in the harbour this was my first opportunity to get a shot of it. It was acting quite furtively by the harbour entrance....

But, with caution, I approached until I was within range, albeit a little distant. Nevertheless I was pleased to record a couple of shots before it flew off with its typical shallow wingbeats.

On the beach a couple of Ringed Plovers have nests and in the sunlight this morning, the birds looked really great as they kept a watchful eye on dog walkers and passers by!

I just hope they survive the constant interruptions!
