The wind terns westerly

Back to normality after the excitement of last weekend! Few small waders around today (although it was low tide), but numbers of Lapwings have built up to 650+ now. Helpful if the long-awaited Osprey should fly over...

Do I look nervous?

Offshore this morning, large numbers of terns , mainly Common & Arctic, feeding in a stiff westerly breeze; also distant glimpses of a couple of Arctic Skuas and Manx Shearwaters. Otherwise, not much else, but the next few weeks are often the most interesting of the year.

Or am I being overly optimistic?!
