After The Storm

Just before 3pm there was an almighty hail storm in Seaton. Once it had passed, it suddenly occurred to me that any number of rare birds could have been forced to seek refuge on our little Estuary. So out I went for a sweep of the Estuary...

Well no rare birds - unless you count Caspian Gull as a rare bird still. Our lingering first winter bird was showing from Coronation Corner...

Horrible light, sorry!

Also along the Estuary, a Knot amongst the Blackwits (with the red flagged bird still present), a Common Sandpiper by the bridge (my first on the Axe for a month - so surely a migrant?) and this second summer Med Gull...

Please do not click to enlarge this photo - it is PANTS!

So although no storm driven rares - still a worthwhile trip out!
