An update at last

At long last I have got around to updating my blog.  I apologise to those of you that  have been mentioning the long gap since the last posting.  Not that there has been a great deal around and certainly nothing different but there have been plenty of our loyal regulars so here are a few photos from around the Axe.
The kingfishers have been fairly visible lately although a bit less predictable than usual as to where and when they might appear

2 little grebes have spent a lot of time squabbling in front of Seaton marshes hide

and this cormorant caught a nice meal.

Around by the field study centre there have been the usual blue tits etc plus several goldfinches

a grey wagtail

and a pair of bullfinches.

Back on Seaton marshes earlier this week 3 snipe put in a very brief appearance

this curlew and redshank seemed inseparable whilst I was there

and this little grebe had caught something long and slimy.

This curlew was having a sedate wash

compared to the violent washing of this bar tailed godwit

and finally this onlooking oyster catcher just calmly watched it all
