Reflecting on a nice morning

This common tern was reflecting on how nice a morning it was at Druridge this morning

I caught the best bit of the day before it clouded over after 7am. A perfect picture of serenity, drift-netting boats out in search of salmon and the occasional puffin.
Bird highlights of the morning were six red-throated divers offshore, family parties of reed bunting and sedge warbler, 12 little grebes on the big pool and this little egret, which landed briefly on the old island before being chased off, into the trees, by an angry young heron.

You can now access the hides without wading through thigh-high grass, NWT have at last strimmed the paths, shame they didn't strim the grass in front of the hides whilst they were on with it......
