 Well June did not happen really it was just an extra long May, with continual rain wind and thoroughly unpleasant days. But migration continues after a fashion as pairing was going on and rapid at that , the incessant rain seems to have washed a lot of insects from the canopy and lots of the higher hunters were keeping well low as they searched for the protein packed packages.

But there was good forecasts for the end of the month and it arrived, no cussing the weather people this time , temperatures got up and stayed for a whole two days, amazed! Sunshine equals coast for some lovely Sandwich Terns.

 After a good afternoon fishing it takes a few extreme spins to remove the salt water in the fresh lagoon.

They never look pleased at being disturbed from there slumber.

Well there you are few tidbits to whizz through whilst I try and find some further interesting species to get in the viewfinder, the Glossy Ibis in North Devon did a brilliant fly by, just directly into the sun Grrrrr!
