Less than half the Golden Plovers roosting on Bridge Marsh this morning... I hear the flock has increased to around 5,000 this evening!
Leaving for a day's feeding.
After enjoying the spectacle of the Golden Plover flocks I headed off to the fields around Musbury in search of photograph-able Redwings and Fieldfares. I had a lovely walk and saw thousands of Thrushes but didn't get any photos other than a couple of flight shots (a challenge to say the least!) they were just too flighty, flushing even when I was walking along the lanes behind the hedges. I got my photos later in the morning though at Seaton Skate Park of all places!

While on my walk I also stumbled upon a small group of Roe Deer. Wasn't really fast enough with the camera but I like this one of the buck.....
... Not the best quality but look at those lovely velvety antlers...I want to touch them!
