A nicer day...for now!

It's been a lovely day today compared with the wrath of Doris yesterday and there is a noticeable change in the air (for now!). Some of the smaller birds around the Reserve are starting find a voice over the calm of the day. On the North Shore I heard Reed Bunting calling with their suurrrpp call and flying between taller stems of marram. The males were looking particularly good.

At Beal car park the quiet has been broken with the comings and goings of chattering starlings in the trees to the North. There has been large groups around and we have been seeing small to medium murmurations over the Island.

Keep an eye out for skylark and meadow pipits in the dunes around the island - they have been calling and displaying.
