Burnham Overy Dunes and Gun Hill

 Gun Hill, Burnham Overy Dunes.

 Cow at Burnham Overy.

 Me behind the gate in the eye!

Skylark singing high in the blue skies.

It won't take you long to read my excursion today! Got up really late as exhausted. Pity really with a glorious sunny day, but there we go.

Went to Gun Hill to find something exciting. It started well with a beautiful Turtle Dove flying just over my head, going west. A few Linnets, Meadow Pipits on route and a single Chiffchaff in the bushes at the end of the sea bank was all I could find. Apart from Wood Pigeons, 2 Grey Partridges and a Magpie, Gun Hill was devoid of birds. Soul destroying. Couldn't find anything to photograph either. I got so bored I was taking pictures of cows! Also there wasn't a single bird on the large pool east of the sea bank, which is very unusual. I did have a couple of Little Egrets fly west, a Marsh Harrier distantly and a couple of Whitethroats in the hedge just by the main road. Took a half decent picture of a Yellowhammer singing in a hedge as the sun was setting. It was a beautiful sunset which cast golden shimmers of light across a wheat field.

 Yellowhammer singing its heart out, Burnham Overy.
