On the causeway but for some strange reason this shot doesn't look to have been taken from well above (which it was).

The birds in this group were tamer than the one with the Sanderling.

Briefly on the boat launch ramp before the boaters moved in. This allows low angle shots without any apparent concrete!

Some summer migrants at last, but most were well out of photo range. This wagtail posed very briefly early on when the sun was out, and the disturbance wasn't too bad.
Reed Bunting

A cold bird on a freezing day! Will this arctic spell ever end?
