It was nice to see the lads today and a face from the past that I have not seen for many years. The birdwatching was excellent with a pair of immature spoonbills taking centre stage. They were mostly asleep but they did take up an unusul stance resting on thier leg joints. 4 adult black terns put on an arial show hawking insects right in front of the hide with a supporting cast of 15 1st summer little gulls , lots of common terns, 2 sandwich terns and a few kittiwakes. 1 dunlin and 2 little ringed plovers also. A common buzzard was distant.
