|The first Eastern Buzzard I've seen in the area this "winter".|
|Juvenile Northern Goshawk.|
|Lunchtime; the agony of choice.|
|Northern Lapwing; part of a flock of 31.|
|Northern Greenshank; numbers vary winter to winter but their favourite high-water roost site doesn't seem to.|
|Short- and medium-billed Far Eastern Curlews, no monsters today.|
|Heading out with the tide; the birds too.|
Great White Egret numbers seem a little down and Little on the up, more of a balance. Cattle were still present on 8 Oct but none by the 21st, Intermediate are still hanging. I've only ever seen one mid-winter Cattle but Intermediate is more likely.
|Great White Egret.|
So often spoonbills either have their bill hidden under their wing or under the water. So it was nice to see this one catching the evening sun as it flew in.
|Immature Eurasian Spoonbill.|
