Another Day Another Trip to Reculver


As the title says , another day another trip to Reculver and my main aim this morning was to see the Shorelark that was there yesterday , i walked along the sea wall and saw the Desert Wheatear displaying to his audience and i noticed one or two familiar faces among the crowd , i carried on and joined up with a couple more birders , as we were walking we were checking every bird mostly Meadow Pipits and Pied Wagtails , we also saw a Northern Wheatear briefly as it flew along the beach .

Superb plumage on this bird.

As we continued our trek the Shorelark flew over us calling and then landed more or less right in front of us , wow great bird in superb plumage , i managed some photos as this cracking bird put on a show for us.

Feeding well.

Black edging to yellow supercillium.

Great watching this bird go about it's business and nice to bump into some familiar faces along the sea wall , i had another look at the Desert Wheatear on my way back .

There were lots of Goldfinch moving along the beach plus at least 2 Stonechats and the usual Dark Bellied Brent Geese grazing in the fields
