Little Ringed Plover stands guard in the Cley NWT car-park – iPhone photo

Just a couple of highlights from yesterday’s volunteering at Cley NWT. The Little Ringed Plover in the car-park is still there – hatching is imminent. I saw my first Grayling of the year. There were about ten along the shingle ridge. Given the speed that coastal erosion is happening along this stretch I wonder how much longer they’ll be there. The best new bird on the main scrapes for me was the moulting Spotted Redshank.

My first Grayling of the year – I never manage to get one with it’s wings open!
