85 Avocets, 5 little Egrets, 3 Black-tailed Godwits & 2 Ruff this morning.
Offshore, there has been a constant stream of Sandwich Terns passing with fish for their young at Ternery Pool, each food item requiring a journey of at least 6 km. The other day, I watched them attempting to feed young on small flatfish, still too wide, however, to be swallowed. After a few minutes of unsuccessful gulping, Black-headed Gulls relieved them of their burden.
Further out, flocks of Gannets are diving, while closer to the shore, the unexpected emergence of a Grey Seal’s head sent a group of bathers thrashing for the beach like a scene from “Jaws”.
