What lovely weather we're having

A late start and a late high-tide produced a predictably limited haul down at the wetlands. A dozen White Wagtails were probably the best on offer; beyond that, only Lesser Whitethroat, House Martin, Wheatear, Turnstone and Greenshank kept the mind from wandering and the eye-lids from closing.

Checked out the RSPB sightings page on my return. Top item was "the new play area has been a real hit with the children during the school holidays, and we had so many visitors the café pretty much ran out of everything on bank holiday Monday", as if proof were needed, it would appear the RSPB have a sense of humour.

Cute huh? Yes, but her mum looks like this...
