A Happy Camper?

The inhabitants of this tent were well tucked in at 7.30 this morning when I did my early morning patch walk.

Apart from a couple of Whimbrel in the harbour, the Mute Swan still sitting on (a nest maybe) on  New Island and a pair of Common Terns on Tern Island it was all very quiet. The lone apple tree has considerable amount of blossom this year ( at least on 50% of the tree the other  50% appears to be dead or dying)...

Apple blossom

Mid morning produced an easterly movement of Swifts
Swift action is needed to capture these birds in flight!

An afternoon walk to the North Wall produced very few waders except Whimbrel .The Slipe Field  'dog walk' had a number of Whitethroats singing.
One thing that did catch my eye was a large notice board erected on the eastern side of Church Farm...

Can you spot the error? One of several actually!
