(Not Quite The) Puppy's Privates

Off to Holy Island this morning for a shot at the RR Swallow.  Sun up at 7.37am, parked up by 8.07am.  Met Andy Cowell, Roger Forster and a couple of others near yesterday's last sighting spot - The Crown and Anchor.  All quiet.  Too quiet!  Not even a sniff for the next two hours before leaving the place as my Canute powers are not what they used to be.  Nonetheless, huge numbers of Pale-bellied Brents and Bar-tailed Godwits, 15 LT Ducks off the Vicar's Garden, and a BT Diver too.  The area opposite the harbour was flooded and was a veritable Teal fest, plus Lapwings, Redshanks and a few Barwits.  Generally, quite busy with quantity making up for quality.  Stag Rock was the stop-off on the way home.  Dozens of Purple Sandpipers an Oystercatchers on the rocks, and off them the usual suspects.  No Grebes or Divers (other than the RT type).
