Quiet Still

Little Egret - Maer Lane - through a gap in the hedge. Love the powder-blue lores.
I've done very little birding this week. Not much seen today either but the three Eider were off Mudbank though distant, hauled out on Cockle Sands. Also off there - 2 Goldeneye, 80+ Wigeon and an adult Mediterranean Gull. The Lesser Black-backed Gull count remains steadfastly on nine birds.
A pre-football 'glance' off Maer Rocks revealed 1+ Purple Sandpiper, 6+ Turnstone and 80+ Dark-bellied Brent Geese.

Knot - Mudbank - earlier in the week.

Dunlin and Turnstone - Mudbank

Red-breasted Merganser - Mudbank
