Greatham Creek and Saltholme RSPB
A visit last Friday and pleased to see 5 Avocets back. Also 2 Lesser Black-backed Gulls. Several Bees on the wing and clouds of midges.
Back in the Bay this week and and love is in the air (for the birds that is).
Shelduck and Ruddy Shelduck
Last week these birds arrived back in the bay in big numbers.
The dunes and fields are filled with singing Skylarks and Stonechats. Stonechats have had a good winter because of the mild weather so they should be off to a good start this spring. The only downside will be the constant disturbance from people and their pooches.
Such a bonny bird.
