Stress escape - go birding

Offspring driving me especially nuts today ... a late afternoon visit (on my own) to the Saltwick area solved that problem.

Not much about, probably less than the Halifax crew turned up yesterday. One Whinchat, one Redstart but also one Ruff, one Red-throated Diver in smart summer plumage an in/off Grey Heron, one Common Tern, quite a few Sandwich Terns and various hundreds of gulls (none of which were of any special interest despite a good bit of scrutiny). There are still some Guillemot offspring contact calling (or is it squalling?). Harbour Porpoise, about 5; Roe Deer, 3 a leaping; Speckled Wood one. 145 Lapwing, but there was nothing lurking amongst them.
