Back to reality, a quick dodge to the patch tonight after work produced very little, the sea was so far out it was in Norway so no use looking at it.
On the big pool, yesterdays ruff had gone (though had been seen by Alan Gilbertson this afternoon) as had the great-crested grebe. A first summer little gull flew through, another welcome year tick and this grey heron kept us entertained feeding on sticklebacks in front of the hide. Another new brood (3) of gadwall were also on the big pool.

MSK sent me a pic of the ruff - nice eh?
