On Tuesday we made our annual pilgrimage to Donna Nook. It was a very overcast day and the forecast was dire, so we arrived to find relatively few people there. The fencing had been completely renewed, so we were distanced from the seals somewhat. Despite this some people who had never been before were amazed at just how close they were able to get to the pups.

Apparently, we just missed 25 Snow Buntings which flew off west, but there were some other birds were present. These included Turnstones, Knot, Redshank, Golden Plover, Shelduck, Great Black-backed Gulls, Brent Geese and Chaffinches.
