In the absence of any other photos here's another shot of one of three Rock Pipits that have been frequenting the dung heap at the top of Gore Lane.
An early morning look off Mudbank, in uncomfortably cold conditions, produced an Osprey a fair way upriver. It had already caught a fish and was lugging it towards Powderham Park. I lost it from view as it lost height and disappeared behind the trees. I'm guessing it arrived late yesterday and have no doubt that it hasn't wasted any time continuing northwards. Also off Mudbank today - 2 Sandwich Tern, 2 Wigeon, 1 Goldeneye, 90+ Curlew, 2 Sanderling, just 5 Red-breasted Merganser and 23 Brent Geese. At least 4 Sandwich Terns were off the seafront late afternoon.
