Spoonbill etc:

A few from the past week or so been out walking and on the bike Spring is definitely here , I had a fledged Wood Pigeon in the garden a couple of weeks ago ,how common are they now in your garden ,weather changeable as always it was good to catch up with the Spoonbill at Cresswell I also had 4 Yellow Wagtails at Lynemouth flash and 8 Wheatear near Cresswell , Whinchat for the year at St Mary's and I have started to look at flowers again surprising how many species there are in flower hidden amongst the dunes and tall grasses   
 Swallow landed outside the hide at Druridge  a pleasant interruption from my search for a Garganey
 This must be a sheep skeleton viewed from the hide at Cresswell
 These three Scoter of ST Mary's Island later that day they had moved to Seaton Sluice
 First Whitethroat of the year at the butts St Mary's , now they are everywhere
First  Grasshopper Warbler in the field opposite the butts and I had another at Meggies Burn
 Spoonbill at Cresswell it sat tucked in the corner and was hard to see till it hopped over into the field west of the hide
 A very smart looking bird sporting some serious bling !!!
Also Cresswell a pair of Avocets feed or it could be the prone position before mating as they did mate soon after
