1st Winter Wheatear
The Lesser Yellowlegs was still present in the north-west corner of Normandy Lagoon but was generally more distant than yesterday and despite the better light there was a heat haze in the 23C temperatures and my photographs suffered as a result. Anyway, here are a few shots that are okay.

On alert as a Kestrel passed over
Also on the lagoon were two Little Stint, including yesterdays ringed bird, a juvenile ruff and a Common Sandpiper amongst the usual common wader species. As I left for home I was intrigued to see this starling roost which numbered 270 birds on the masts of the expensive looking yachts in the marine.
