24-06-08 QE11 to Hauxley

Took the bike up to QE11 lake in the car ,and from here cycled to Hauxley via the coast,Cresswell had 6 Little Gulls but not much else the level does not seem to be getting much lower,Druridge pools at the screen a Little Egret it flew a little further away then up popped another, they eventually passed so I could get them together,through the dunes to Chevington, a couple of 1st summer Arctic Terns from the middle "shed", I only found three Bee Orchids but did not look to hard,Hauxley was Hauxley with not much around juvenile, Oystercatcher,Lapwing & Redshank feeding along the shoreline,plenty of Common Blues today, Maiden Pink, Orange Hawkweed, in flower,rain on the return made the trip seem longer but it was not a bad day out. Little Gulls at Cresswell I have seen them feeding off Snab Point

Little Egret the pools
Two Little Egrets nearly a flock !!!!is there a term for a group ?

Sedge along the track
