The wind with a lack of a decent tide was still a hinderance today, and made birding the mosses particularly pointless, apart from the usual species, so I popped up to Marshside for an hour or so.
Almost dessicated, with very little water left, and that which does remain will soon be muddy gloop.
Not much happening there either, apart from the Avocets, and about 25 Dunlin north of Sandgrounders Hide.
Blackwits, Redshank and Lapwing around the hide with a Ringed Plover on the Sandplant Lagoon.
Whitethroat and Percy Sledge still singing.
One Lapwing was going frantic trying to protect its youngster - getting late on for one this young - but it was doing okay.
Just has to avoid becoming a Grey Heron snackette and all will be well.
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
