So after all those seabirds, whales and dolphins it is back to the wildlife and especially the birds around Thornton. On Thursday it was nice to see a pair of Grey Partridge in the field below the nursery. This is the first time that I have seen this Red listed species locally for several years. I hope that they successfully breed.
Nearby were a pair of Grey Wagtails, feeding in the outflow channel. This species breeds locally and is always great to see.
