As I was walking towards the Lifeboat ramp a bird of prey spooked everything. At first I couldn't quite see what it was as it skimmed low over the sand, but then it landed. A Peregrine Falcon, sat on the beach, some 40 yards away. Absolutely superb.
You can just make out the rainbow that was sat over the building in the centre.
Hundreds of Cormorants were constantly on the move.
Dunlin and Oystercatchers.
Oystercatchers on the move.
As the tide comes in, the birds keep getting moved on.
One of three Grey Plovers that did a low fly past over me.
A welcome visitor. A Peregrine Falcon that spooked nearly everything.

Have an enjoyable weekend!
You captured some amazing shots of the birds. The birds in flight are my favorites. I love that you were able to capture the Oyster-catchers in different stages of their flight allowing us to see their full wing color.ReplyDelete
Beautiful photos, Adam! Great blue sky background. Are those wind turbines in a couple of the shots? Love the falcon!ReplyDelete
Nice Peregrine shots Adam. It might be taking a rest but still looks purposeful.ReplyDelete
Great series. Love the falcon. Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.ReplyDelete
