There can be two endings to a days sea watching, either you guess the weather correctly and see a shed load of good sea birds or your a day late and you miss the bus. However, on the Lincs coast you nearly always miss the bus even when the conditions are great. It wasn't a complete waist of time though as i did have the pleasure of watching at least 7 dogs crapping on the beach, all before 7.30am.
I've been assisting with a GCN re-translocation project near the reservoir. The above photo shows from top, ad female GCN, ad Male, this years juvenile and bottom individual is a this years juvenile Smooth Newt. There is a considerable size difference between juvenile GCN and Smooth Newt.
