Gibraltar Point

Time to burn off some turkey with a wander around Gibraltar Point. Bright winter sun all day long, a light breeze and a lot milder than we were expecting, given the sub-zero temperatures over night.

One Sanderling was poking about by the waves once we reached the shore. I did the necessary, laid down on the mud/sand and waited for it to come past. Luckily it obliged, possibly because of the dog walkers heading our way.

We waited at the car park to see if the Owls would come out. We saw one Barn Owl briefly fly past and then disappear again. Talking to another birder later on three had been quartering the other side of the sea wall. A note for next time!
