More wind but this time some birds

Managed to get in on the Leach's action today.
These shots are of a bird seen from the shelter of the Brownsea Ferry Hut at Sandbanks, looking south. After initially being quite active this bird gradually spent longer and longer periods just sat on the water.

A second bird that was some way further into the harbour. You can just about see the pale covert band

Had a look in at Poole Park for more wafes and strays. However only a few locals around.

Back to Sandbanks for another look, no sign of any more Leaches.
Purps as tame as ever but light failing now
