A morning by the coast.

Another few hours bird watching and sea watching on the coastline at Titchfield Haven and Meon Shore.

A few Godwit were in the harbour feeding on the mud.

A first for me today a pair of Mute Swans mating in the lagoon at Titchfield Haven, they entangled their necks and danced together in the water. They stood tall with their necks stretched high the male mounted the pen. They then continued to dance together. Swans begin to breed between 3 and 4 years of age, swans usually mate for life, remaining together through the year. The process was graceful and gentle – unlike the local Male Mallard ducks who brutally jump on any passing female duck

Mandatory Sanderling film – film a bit shaky – but made me smile birds jumping of the groin.
