Nice afternoon

By far the most numerous butterfly on the wing

New ponds at East Stobswood

Lovely mild and sunny afternoon at Widrington tip. Nice light for some pics. The new ponds at East Stobswood are beginning to attract some birds. There were several Curlews and Oystercatchers, large flocks of lapwings, Canada Geese and Gulls. Also Mallard and Gadwall as well as lots of Swallows and a Wheatear.

What will be the first good bird on the new ponds Nige?

Anything could drop in there but it looks ideal for breeding Little Ringed Plover next spring.
