A waste of time?

Spent most of today putting up a fence to prevent disturbance to any terns that may (but probably won't) nest. Even if they do there's a pretty good chance that they'll fail due to high tides/ sandblow/ food shortage/ fox predation/ crow predation/ kestrel predation/ egg collecting f*ckers/ human disturbance or possibly even loneliness. This has all happened in previous years...

Bird-wise, didn't really have time too see much today, not even the drake Ring-necked Duck down the coast at Seafield Pond (a good find for this area), but did actually see an overflying Tree Pipit today. 132 and counting.
