Awaiting something different

An evening visit to Black Hole Marsh yielded 10 Dunlin, 3 Whimbrel (plus a 4th on the estuary), 1 Greenshank and 1 Goosander which continues to occasionally roost on one of the islands. There were also many Sand Martins and Swallows flying low over BHM & the estuary. It was nice to have some different weather this evening; we even had some rain! Hopefully the birds cope well with this brief chilly spell; I've seen on Twitter that some Ospreys in Scotland are incubating eggs in igloo-like mounds of snow!
