Cold, but worthwhile

We drove down to St. Mary's this afternoon in anticipation of some sunlight which did not materialise. In fact there was a real cutting cold breeze.
However on the way there we stopped at the flash just east of the Beehive pub. There were good numbers of Tufted Duck, Shelduck, Curlew, Grey Partridge and these Greylag Geese -

At St. Mary's wetland this Kestrel hunted and before heading along the south bay cliffs was joined by another.

Although we found it too cold to linger we did see Dunlin, Purple Sandpiper, Ringed Plover, Redshank, Turnstone, Golden Plover, all in small numbers by the waters edge
before we scarpered home.
