Two Tree Island Lagoon - Sunrise

High tide and sun rise coincided this morning so I went to see what birds were in Two Tree Island Lagoon. There were an awful lot of Black Tailed Godwit (2000+) and Oyster Catcher (around 500). There were 4 Sandwich Tern and among the Common Tern there were 2 very young birds being fed by their parents. Elsewhere on the West end of Two Tree there was a sizeable gathering of passerines including Willow Warblers, Whitethroats, Lesser Whitethroat, Goldfinch, Greenfinch, Blue Tits and a Great Tit. The Willow Warblers were yellowy younguns and looked great feeding off the yellow fennel flowers. Unfortunately I didn't manage to get a photo of that so here's a photo of the lagoon as the sun came up....

(For some reason I'm unable to upload photos at the moment so please click the links below if you'd like to see them.....)
