Above - top, an adult Knot in summer plumage, a nice red one. Centre - Sanderling, Bottom - Waders feeding frenzy in shot, Sanderling, Dunlin and Turnstone.
A nice sunny calm morning at Boulmer with the smell of autumn.
Out with Bunty along the old runways had 6 Willow Warblers and a female Blackcap plus 3 Long tailed Tits at the Golfcourse scrub, 8 Grey and 2 Red-legged Partridges, 50 Linnets and 3 Buzzards, 2 showing well the other distantly all in the same binocular view.
I attempted a sea watch this evening but it was dead. Like looking at the Med!
Two patch ticks in a morning can't be bad though -
128. Red-legged Partridge.
