Evening dog walk at Seasalter

Walked our dog Nell around the Seasalter area in the early evening. On arrival we heard a Cuckoo way out towards the plots and later bumped into a female near the chalets. A male Marsh Harrier was quartering the marsh and we shortly after came across the below Short-eared Owl, The tide was on its way out and there were at least 6 Little Egrets along the foreshore with a further 3 inland on the marsh. Singing Reed and Sedge Warblers were distributed along the reed beds,

Now that the disastrous plans for the massive solar farm has been given the go-ahead, one wonders whether these sightings will become  just distant memories in the future for those of us lucky enough to have known the area untainted from such unwelcome developments!

The following two photos of the colour-ringed Black-tailed Godwit are to draw attention to the damaged left leg and swollen ankle. Whether the injury is a result of the colour-rings cannot be determined,
