Whites Creek was alive with waders but the most interesting to me were three Spotted Redshanks...always very photographic subjects...
...and further along a Greenshank, many Redshanks, Lapwings, a Grey Plover and, as a bonus, a fast flying Kingfisher.
Way out on the mudflats a party of Knot and Dunlin...a poor highly cropped record shot..
Back on the beach dozens of Painted Ladies adorn the buddleia
... but most in good condition
Here, a single small tortoiseshell
A late afternoon stroll along the spit turned up a 'tortoishell' (almost summer plumaged) Turnstone feeding on grubs in the seaweed in the Little Lagoon
Lastly, this is one of five Wheatears on the spit balancing on the fence wire....the wind has got up again!!
Someone mentioned Whinchats early this morning but certainly no trace now (5.00pm)
