The first part of the day was spent pottering about the isthmus, no Common Sandpipers about,which was a bit disappointing as there is usually at least one pair about, but not today. However first up was the Pied Wagtails, both adults are now feeding young.

The next batch of pics were taken from a moving launch, so pics are not that good, but its better any boat traffic keeps moving, as its less likely to disturb the Grebe.
|Great-crested Grebe, she is now sitting tight on eggs, lets hope she has success, !!!|
At one point a goose came flying right at the launch, and it wasn't till I loaded the pics onto the computer I realised it was one of a few Barnacle Geese that spend the summer around the lake.
|It came flying at me so fast the camera wouldn't focus.|
