The heat is on...

One of those hot sunny Sundays that you just dread!

Loads of visitors, dogs running around, folk with fires, people wandering through fenced off areas and strange men wandering through the dunes with their dangly bits hanging out. Sad.

Surprisingly, the birding was relatively ok! A Yellow Wagtail seen flying off later re-appeared and turned out to be of the thunbergi (Grey-headed) race, possibly the same bird seen a few miles up the coast yesterday. A year tick for the site! Also, there were a few birds around at high tide - 13 Grey Plover, 10 Sanderling, 3 Dunlin & 7 Knot, as well as a moulting flock of 54 Mallard and 16 Canada Geese. Ok, so they're a bit loud and obnoxious, but we don't get them here that often and times are hard...
