Time to pave the garden!

Doing chores today cost me an excellent sea watch this morning and an Iceland Gull this afternoon.
09.00-10.00 from the sea watch hide the highlights were 545 Brent Geese and 3 Sandwich Terns east (TG had already had the best part of 4,000 and 60+ before I arrived).
In the Lighthouse Garden 2 Chiffchaffs newly arrived with sticky black pollen on there foreheads and bill, 2 Song Thrushes and 2 Black Redstarts with at least 2 more around the Research Station.
At Boulderwall plenty of Tree Sparrows around the feeders, the drake Garganey was still on the first pool and 2 red head Smew were on the adjacent pool. With the spring arrival of BP the next couple of hours or so was spent by the pools chatting and watching Marsh Harriers and more chatting. As I had promised to mow the lawn this afternoon  I came home early, in doing so I missed an adult Iceland Gull at the fishing boats see
