2020 Update.

The weather during the past few weeks has been generally quite dire and the chance for some decent photographs have been few and far between. However there have been a few days of sunshine and those have been the days I have, for one reason or another, been otherwise occupied.
However here are a few shots  of those birds I have been able to capture 'on film'.
Turnstone at harbour entrance

Brent Goose...I think with injured wing.

Mallards on the Lagoon

Both male and female seem to like this post.

Red Breasted Merganser ..a pair have taken up residence on the 'new' lagoon.

                                                                    A superb bird!

Plenty of Wigeon about.

Kingfisher... a frequent visitor to the 'new' lagoon.

Stonechats...several pairs have taken up winter quarters on the beach and spit.

Song of several in the horse paddock near North Wall.

Superb Grey Wagtail also in horse paddock, yesterday

The resident Kestrel.

Marsh having regular sightings 

Barn Owl....a regular, but usually distant.
....and as a little extra, a couple of roe deer the other side of Breech Pool 

...and finally...
A sunset a couple of evenings ago.
