Sea & Haven

Some pictures taken earlier in the week at Titchfield Haven Nature Reserve and Meon Shore.

Common darter Dragonfly.

Migrant Hawker Dragonflies in flight. For every successful picture there are many misses!

Comma Butterfly.

Beach birds. A film of a collection of birds seen from the beach – a Cormorant taking off plus a Turnstone and Black-headed gulls.

A Juvenile Herring Gull standing proud watching the world go by. There seems to be a lot of young Herring Gulls around Meon Shore and Lee on the Solent this year I am not sure where they nest as I have not seen any nesting locally, they like cliffs or seaside buildings using their roofs – so I wonder if they nested across the water at one of the coastal town on the Isle of Wight.

A lone Turnstone on the waters edge.
