A quieter day today, but still with a nice surprise.
I was up rather early, possibly a little too early...
Not ideal lighting conditions for seawatching I think you'll agree, but watching a sunrise over the sea truly is the best way to start the day.
After a long morning, including a WeBS count, it was back to the ranch for a well deserved fry-up. We were just about to get stuck in when mobiles started ringing, with local birders flashing up on the display, uh-oh, whats going on?
'2 Cranes flying down The Point from The Watch-house', oh bugger, what awful timing. Heap a load of beans onto a wedge of eggy bread, shove in mouth, get up, grab bins and camera, rush for door, there's a blockage of bodies and tripod legs, turn around, back to plate, pop in a couple of mushrooms for good measure, try the door again, outside, there's the birds, cop a binful, camera up, click click click, birds are away now, back inside, to table, chow down, sorted!
