St. Mary's Brent

A visit to St. Mary's this afternoon was quite productive.
In the North Bay a single Brent Goose fed on the green seaweed

A couple of Bar-Tailed Godwit moved uneasily from patch to patch

While the Dunlin were heads down getting stuck-in while they could

Small numbers of Sanderling mixed with the Turnstone, Redshank and Ringed Plover

and Curlew
Large numbers of Lapwing and Golden Plover gathered in the South Bay rock ends as the tide came in.

Rock Pipits and Wheatear were also present

I was there about the same time also dont know how we missed each other (or could it have been something to do with vertical challenges)

Hope to bump into you soon for a chat

I just had time to do the North Bay which was quite busy with birds.
Looking forward to seeing you

Lovely photos, St Mary's is just up the coast so I must make an effort to pay it a visit

Thanks Michelle,
I think its a great spot for birds especially from half tide upwards.
