Birding on the spit this morning was interrupted by police and bomb disposal making safe an ordnance found on the beach.

In the entrance a group of 5 Red Breasted Mergansers were accompanied by a single female Goldeneye.

Here are just 4 of them with the Goldeneye. They were restless and soon made off seaward returning later to the harbour 

There were a pair of Stonechats alongside the Little Lagoon...
A big flock of Black Tailed Godwits...
...and Lapwings seen looking towards the North Wall.

Apart from this, a party of 5 Skylarks and 4 Meadow Pipits. 
(Apologies for the poor blogs of late...will try to improve)
