3 imagingary birders breakfasts

I spent a very pleasant morning birding with Mark and John B at Saltholme RSPB today. Granted, there was nothing in particular to go there for, but there was plenty to keep us interested none the less.

In no particular order birding highlights included 1+ marsh harrier, juv black-necked grebe, 2 yellow wagtail, 2+ greenshank, 1 wood sandpiper, peregrine (had a pop at the wood sand!), ruff, 1 little ringed plover and whimbrel. Best of all was the "birders breakfast" (record shot featured here) - we each chose the nine item meal (yum) and spent a good while catching up on our respective gossip while enjoying it.

Note strategic position of pager - even while enjoying breakfast we're on mega alert!
