Sunny Reculver

 A change of scenery today with a visit to Reculver. At the car park a Rock Pipit was on the rocks. A couple beaches east of the Towers 5 Snow Buntings were showing well feeding on the high tide line. On the shore line were many Turnstone with good numbers of Sanderling, Grey Plover, Ring Plover and a few Oystercatcher. On the sea a Pale -bellied Brent Goose with 3 Dark- bellied Brents. Next to the promenade by the Oyster beds a confiding Stonechat and further along just before Cold Harbour Lagoon 3 Shorelark on the Mound but very skittish with all the cyclists whizzing past. The only way to get any sort of photograph was to wait further on for them to be flushed towards me which was ok untill
 the dog walkers let there muts loose. In the fields on the way back 60+ Lapwing, 40+ Dark-bellied Brent Geese and a few Fieldfare and Skylark.
