Up again pre dawn to see what was heading out. Not a great deal this morning, only a handful of Terns with most of yesterdays having already moved on.
Checked the lagoon but no sign of last nights Buff-breast today.
Spoonbills flushed by something. Didnt see the culprit.
Juv Teal feeding just outside the hide
Islands busy with Blackwits, most now in winter plumage with the odd orange bird
Juv Blackwit with a few adult winter scapulars now appearing
From the other side
Much plainer adult bird
Colour ringed bird. Think all my records have have turned out to be from birds ringed on the Icelandic breeding grounds apart from a few ringed by Pete Potts in Langstone.
Every now and then the sun would break through lighting up the subject
Teal coming in to land
Colour ringed Avocet. Have to get back to you on that one
Juv Shelduck, with shiny green speculum glinting in the sunlight
