LRP, Cattle Egrets and Mink

An early visit to Tower Hide yielded a juvenile Yellow-legged Gull on the estuary right in front of Coronation Corner, perhaps the bird which arrived late the previous evening. After having a couple flyover Yellow Wags recently (heard but not seen) it was nice to see perhaps 6 Yellow Wagtails perched up yesterday. I had 4+ from Tower Hide in the morning; they dropped in during a brief rain shower and there were a couple at BHM in the evening. 

Other birds of note included 2 Cattle Egrets, 2 Green Sandpipers, 2 juvenile Med Gulls, 1 Greenshank and a juvenile LRP which Ian W found in the afternoon. Seaton Marshes was quiet apart from a showy Buzzard.

This Mink was sat underneath a perch that one of the juvenile Kingfishers was fishing from. It watched the Kingfisher diving from perhaps 2 foot away so it was rather uncomfortable to see.
