Another cracking morning on Monday with bright sunshine and very little wind...a Short Eared Owl was being harassed by several corvids high over the harbour...
...going higher and higher as it drifted west until out of sight.
Duck numbers are increasing with good numbers of Pintail...
...and Wigeon spread through the harbour
Some in splendid winter plumage...others not so!
Plenty of Lapwings are present although the Golden Plover seen last week seem to have moved on.
The regular Curlew was feeding in the sunlight by the sluice gate and was an obvious photographic subject!
On Tuesday the day dawned in a somewhat drab fashion so photographs too, looked somewhat drab.
Subjects were difficult to come by as it was mainly Mute Swans and Grey Herons.
On the return trip along Whites Creek I managed a few very long distance shots of a pair of Spoonbills...apologies for quality but at least I had the pleasure of seeing them.
