Distant Marsh Harrier
On turning around and looking along Whites Creek from the sluice gate I got a good view of a splendid summer plumage Spotted Redshank...
On the opposite bank and a little further away a Greenshank....
In the far distance a pair of Yellow Legged Gulls (possibly three) but too far away even for a record shot.
...but then, another couple of birds almost too far away but irresistible to photograph were two Cattle Egrets in bushes on the usual high water egret roost site towards owl copse.
Apart from these good birds a couple of Whimbrel were present out on the mudflats and a lonely Curlew was feeding by the wall ........
...plus a small flock of Curlews flying from Honer fields to the harbour.
Short and sweet but a pleasant 45 minutes!
A few photos from earlier...

...and finally an Emperor dragonfly on the garden pond.
....and that's it for now
