A lovely sunny warm evening at Boulmer tonight. Sea slightly choppy at high tide, but no wind to speak of.
The Whinchat has been joined by a second bird tonight near the Seaton Point laybye. 12 Grey Plovers, including a dapper male still in summer plumage, were waiting for the tide to recede and a female Sparrowhawk was chasing around the farm house.
Quite a bit of weed has been washed up here. A lot of common waders are taking full advantage, maybe a hundred birds in total, with Dunlin, Redshank, Ringed Plover, Knot, Turnstone and a single Sanderling enjoying a feast of insects in the rotting pile.
