Cone munchers.

I tried a few different settings on the camera and managed to fluff most of the shots but the sightings remain the same. A couple of Golden Eagle were seeing off this WT Eagle at the start of the day.
All the favourites were present with 1 Otter seen, several GN Diver, male Hen Harrier, Whimbrel, a WT Eagle at the nest where we had a young Golden Eagle being chased by a Raven.
An Adder was difficult to spot but we all seen it, a Slow Worm was found in the middle of the road and plenty of other stuff. Just after the guests had left this chipper chap turned up to munch some cones - a Common Crossbill.
The following day we got straight into things with a Brent Goose being found feeding on the tide line.
There were Ringed Plover and Dunlin on the beach, GN Diver in the bay and a Snipe dropped into the Iris at another location. A superb Red-throated Diver in summer plumage performed well while we had lunch. A male Common Crossbill was seen having a bath in a trickle of water.
A day flying Pipistrelle Bat was a good find...
...and it was nice to see the pale Buzzard again.
WT Eagle, Golden Eagle and Otter were seen in the afternoon plus Red Kite and Wood Warbler.
