Great White Egret

This Marsh Harrier was hanging around close to where 2 Great White's and 2 Grey Herons were feeding !  Swooping down to come up with a fish ! The MH must have stole the fish from the Great White Egret !

Next stop breakfast, (for us), then

Early afternoon, down by the fishing boats, the light is perfect, blue sky,
the wind is in the wrong direction, to many fishermen, the Gulls stay away !

Herring Gull, 1st winter

We move on, to stop on the roadside on the causeway,
The light is still good !

a 1st winter Little Gull was feeding on the ARC Pit, sometimes coming fairly close !
