Minsmere RSPB

A trip to Minsmere for some sun, sea air and whatever ever may be lurking within these magnificent environs.

The sun was out - briefly - followed by cloud that then exposed a cool south-easterly breeze.  The sun did eventually reappear and stayed to warm the senses and take in what is a fabulous place.

It was predictably quiet - migration just starting to take hold but there was plenty to behold.  From the North Wall, two Stone Curlew were strutting around the heath appearing to be in close attendance to a breeding site.

A Whimbrel flew strongly by that was later seen on South Scrape.  Common Tern were present in good numbers.  The East Scrape held at least seven Spotted Redshank, three Ruff, Common Sandpiper, Green Sandpiper, four summer plumage Dunlin, Black-tailed Godwit and Avocet.

At least four Mediterranean Gull were on South Scrape as was a stunning summer plumage Turnstone and two Ringed Plover.

Two Hobby flew over Whin Hill.
