Cem. surprise.

After feeling crap most of the weekend it was time for a walk out so headed down to the beach again. One of the Great crested grebes was still here working the length of the beach just passed the breakers. Smaller numbers of waders on the rocks here today…60+ Dunlin, 15+ Sanderling and the steady 30 Ringed plovers. And a Rock pipit appeared(not seen a one here for a while).
Went into Westoe cemetery this afternoon and wished I’d brought the camera! The place was buzzing. The feeders were busy with 20 Greenfinch, 15+ Goldfinch, 12 Chaffinch, 10+ Blue tits, 3-5 Great tits, 15+ Spuggies and 4 Brambling! 2 males. 15 Redwings and 2 Mistle thrush feeding on the grassed areas further into the cem.

And the photo’s are from Friday....... Orange fronted Dunlin.
