Marsh Lane 8th March, sunshine and clouds, wind from left.
Continuous harsh croaks and calls from the black headed gulls.
Occasional incomplete lapwing calls.
Sudden continuous high piping of oystercatchers as they fly in.
Oystercatchers running together in formation in a pair.
Head down, neck forward, piping loudly, bills down and open.
Piping in unison.
Red bills, legs, eyes.
Head dipping and waving, croaking call and deep chuckles as shelduck sees off a rival.
Pair of coots, suddenly whirring forward, legs trailing in the water.
