Birds Feeding at Snettisham RSPB

At a first glance, the extensive mud flats at Snettisham appear devoid of birds at low tide but looking more closely we found Oystercatcher and Ringed Plover pulling out worms and a Curlew catching a crab. Further along Common Terns were snatching small fish from a creek and taking them back to islands on the gravel pits behind the beach. Most have finished breeding but one male tried to insist a female accepted his gift - in vain. Later an Egret was tossing a small invertebrate of some type.
