Early Worm II
Wessie was freakin' freezin' this morning, albeit bright, clear and dry. The water held its usual gulls, the equally predictable warblers were in full voice too.
A Grey Heron came in from the E and the gulls and a Lapwing lifted. Didn't think gulls feared herons to the extent they were up and off W towards the NIE.
And then the real reason appeared and remained for a minute or so before it was off SW. Excuse the cold-handed, panic-ridden shots that barely hit the 'record' threshold:
I initially thought it was an adult F as with the naked eye there were light wing patches but the camera never lies so juvenile it is.
