The weather continues to be unsettled but as usual it doesn't make too much difference to the wildlife. We started the day with an Otter sharing a point of land with a Grey Heron. The Otter left the shore, caught another fish and headed straight for us - awesome!
A good haul of waders with 12 Dunlin, 6 Ringed Plover, 2 Golden Plover and a Greenshank in attendance. An adult WT Eagle was sitting in a tree as two youngsters flew around - one came for a close look.
Another Otter was seen in the bay before we moved on. A Grey Wagtail was foraging in a small stream at our next stop.
Another Otter, good views of Hen Harrier and another two WT Eagle kept the interest going. One of the WT Eagles was in flight and heading away from us, we lost sight of it but we managed to relocate it a mile or so further down the road.
Plenty of excitement all the way to end of the day as we located a Pale-bellied Brent Goose...
...and a cute, fluffy, Mountain Hare!
