View from the van.

Another early start this morning with breakfast by the sea.

SS Queen Victoria entering Southampton Water. I do not think she has been anywhere in this lockdown world. I did hear they were taking some of the liners out to give their engines a run.


Although the tide was in and the nature reserve closed there were plenty of passing birds.

A Dunlin fly past.


Common tern.


As well as a Common tern there was also a Sandwich tern fishing off the beach (note the black beak compared to the orange of the common tern).



Looking over the fence into the temporary closed nature reserve I spotted a Redshank and a pair of Oystercatchers.
