Pilots Point and Rempstone

Good count of 34 Sanderling at Pilots Point, also 41 Dunlin and 4 Ringed Plover
Unfortunately they were very regularly disturbed by walkers but for some reason kept coming back for more.

Female Reeve's Pheasant popped out briefly from the undergrowth

Green Hairstreak

Found this dead Lizard on one of the tracks and brought it home.
When I first found it it was quite a shade of blue which was what intruiged me, not to mention the size which was just over an inch and a half long. Presumably a young one or maybe an exotic escape? Looking up Sand and Common Lizards on the interweb couldnt find any that were blue!

Certainly can see its ancestry here
