Been a very bitty day today... which never seemed to get going. I started off at Warnham LNR.. very quiet around the feeders. Weather's been most dull although nearer the coast it did brighten up a bit with some welcome sunshine.
From the Tern Hide a brief glimpse of a Grey Wagtail, two Common Tern and a pair of Great Crested Grebes which were fishing - successfully!
The pair of mute swans are still on their nest on a small island
Grey Herons are nesting on site again - one high up at the top of a tree on the opposite bank.
This one looks like young one to me?
Not far from the heron was a much smaller bird which looked very like a Dunlin.. too well hidden for a picture which was annoying as I can't get a positive ID now... hey ho!
Not the best of pictures by a long shot, but long shot of the two Common Terns it is.. just a record.
I was not too far from Patching so I stopped by the lake as I'd seen nesting GC Grebes a week or so back.
They have now produced young. as far as I could make out it was one... possibly two but no more than that! Mum and babe(s) were far far away so, yes you've guessed, just a record shot.
And tomorrow... is another day... hopefully a better one :D
