It Was Not Hot Mum

Today was my first visit to the Baywatch site for over a week (car off the road)
The PBP was frozen over with only a small channel of ice free water where most of the remaining residents were congregating. Nothing much to see as Roger had reported in an earlier post last week. The odd gull landing was a little comical as it applied the landing gear and slid a few yards across the pool.
The small stuff had the sense to remain covered in the sub zero conditions.
On the foreshore were the usual Oystercatchers, Turnstones in the salad bowl, Rock Pipits and a dozen plus Ringed Plover at the waters edge.
A trip to St Anthony's was again fruitless as only the usual Mallards etc and a couple of Teal were seen. No Yellow Browed Warbler.
