An Axe estuary assortment

Like many people the hot weather has kept me from doing too much of late but as it appears to be never ending I have decided to make the best of the cooler times of the day to get out and about.   There were still  plenty of redshanks to be seen on Black hole marsh today and plenty of black tailed godwits

together with shellducks of various ages

The were at least 7 common sandpipers

this little ring plover

a green sandpiper

and these 2 rather distant grenshanks

                 The oyster catchers look as though they are trying to lose their youngsters

and the linnets persistently refuse to perch any lower down than on the telegraph wires

On Seaton marshes earlier this week this young moorhen was one of 5 chicks

and finally this sparrowhawk is doing regular patrols above my garden
