Each year at this time Shelducks can be seen in the early morning exploring the rabbit warren by the Little Lagoon. This morning a pair were carrying out a close inspection but as as soon as they spotted me they hurried into the relative safety of the water...long enough to obtain a couple of shots before they made off.
A few Curlews flew out from the harbour whilst a number of calling Mediterranean Gulls flew east.
It was the wheatears that stole the show this morning; they were perching on the high spots before dropping down to the ground in search of grubs...summer really is coming!!
Two Swallows flew in from the sea and a Chiffchaff was lurking in the gorse.
...and finally a Starling in full breeding dress.
