Still quiet!

Yesterdays report of a summer plumaged Curlew Sandpiper had me scurrying to the North Wall area this morning. Alas, it was way out in the middle of the harbour and even with a 'scope view it was  difficult to see! So another quiet morning with just a 'fly by' Common Sandpiper, Whimbrel and an Avocet on Breech Pool to brighten things up.

Distant Whimbrel.

Immature Avocet far side of the pool.

...and a couple of Common Terns.

There were, however the usual Grey Herons! various poses

 ...and in flight!

A couple of Swallows were twittering on the power lines in Church Lane and incidentally there was at least one pair feeding young in the hopefully they will soon fledge.

....and that was about it!
