Final Seashore Visit

Thursday saw our final visit to the sandy shoreline, although we did keep off the sand this year, and walked through Kilnsea Wetlands and Long Bank instead.  It was a lot hotter than Tuesday's icy visit.  On the downside we had severe attacks of hay fever on both sessions, although in the afternoon a light sea breeze, made it slightly less oppressive.  The Avocets and their chicks were still present, and this time we had some close views of some Oystercatcher fledglings.  A Kestrel flew through the Little Tern colony and was very heavily mobbed after the below photographs were taken.  At lunch time I had lunch in a quiet hide where I was joined by one of the inhabitants - a very nice close encounter!  Towards the end of the afternoon session we witnessed a fly-past by the Red Arrows!
