Braving the cold at Kilnsea Wetlands

Yesterday was a beautiful sunny morning but with a freezing cold wind and there was not a huge amount around.  Best of the few were about 28 avocets and apart from about a dozen Redshank, very little else.  However these beautiful birds made the visit worthwhile.

Avocets





On leaving the hide I literally almost walked in to a Short Eared Owl. I had seen it earlier at a distance but as I walked along the path near the bank it flew out at head height when I was only about a yard away. I don't know who was the more surprised.




On the way home the weather changed for the worst but not before I came across this beautiful Yellowhammer. There seem to be more around than usual this year.
