Friday Hawking

Good day at work today – led a walk in the morning and managed to bump into Common AND Sand Lizard, with a bonus Natterjack Toad in the heat of the dunes. The Sand Lizard was the first I’ve encountered this year – a small beastie, born last year going on size.
It’s always good to see recruitment into the population.
With the last few minutes of the afternoon, I slipped into Sandgrounders at Marshside to watch the two first summer Little Gulls hawking over the Sandplant pool.
I know my pics are crap, but Little Gulls, well, they’re fab aren’t they?
