Northern Breakwater 16/02/2018

On a trip to the breakwater this early afternoon I spotted these two Ringed Plover along with two Purple Sandpipers. On leaving I spotted a group of gulls circling over this Cormorant that was having a hard time with a rather large meal. It struggled for ages trying to swallow it and had to spit it out and rest several times. It did get it in eventually but it was too long to go in completely and it swam away very low in the water with the tail still sticking out of it's mouth.

Not a bird but it likes my bird table!


This young vixen first found some food on the bird-table a few weeks ago,since then I have been feeding her kitchen scraps and dog food  It actually stares in through the window and seems not to be bothered by my presence!
