Heysham Skeer - low water 09:40
No Knot today, presumably the Peregrine got there before I did.
Great Crested Grebe 2
Pale-bellied Brent 12 (previous high count this winter was 11) Feeding in the SE corner of skeer at low water. I don't know if they moved up to the children's play area with the tide, but they didn't get as far as Red Nab.
This shot shows all 12, including the Canadian ringed birds
This is a close up of the ringed birds
|Red V Blue T = VTRB plus VDRB|
As I was leaving there was a rainbow. I got all arty again (I think the social isolation is finally getting to me! (MD))
|All 12 Brent feeding in a rainbow's reflection|
Middleton Nature Reserve - early afternoon
Just a quick check of the "no swimming" pond

|All seems amicable in the Shoveller society today.|
