Had a pleasent but rather quiet morning with Breydon Water regulars Pete and Tony. Breydon has become my favourite pre-family duties birding location. Enjoy the challenges distant shorebirds. This morning ASDA carpark delivered the most exciting birds. As I got out of the car a Green Sand flew over and landed in some ditch on the other side of the bridge. At the carpark itself this stunning juvenile Starling took my breath away:
Large numbers of Lesser Black-backed Gull families feeding young:
And this Oystercatcher was probing in the grass:
Tide was in so shorebirds were concentrated but difficult to see in the tall grass. Highlights were 2 Knot, 1 Grey Plover, 1 Turnstone, 1 Spotted Redshank, 2 Greenshank, 6 Med Gulls. More Dunlin and Goldies compared to my previous visit.
