Evening Walk

It was a nice warm evening at the Lake and I thought there would be very little change in bird activity . Mostly that was correct
The Swan and remaining Cygnet were on show as were the two tribes of Goslings who are still intact.
A Heron flew over and settled on the far side along with a fistful of Canada Geese.
Proceeding to the beach walk the odd Crow or Two just kept out of photographic range as is par for the course.
Four small birds flew in from offshore and started feeding at the waters edge, they turned out to be Sanderlings .Another addition to the list along with the Rock Pipit from the previous day.
Very little else was happening. The Herring Gulls along with a couple of Great Black-backed Gulls were bobbing a little offshore and that was it for the beach.
The rest of the walk produced the usual bunch of singing Song Thrushes, Dunnocks, Chaffinchs, Blackbirds, Robins and Greenfinch.
We watched the sun settle and returned home happy with the walk and the Sanderlings an added bonus.
