Spring in the air

Weather: SW-2, Mild becoming cooler later 

A brief visit to the 'North Shore' and a walk around the Lighthouse paddocks did initially have a spring like feel to it before a cold front moved through returning temperatures back down.

A Mediterranean Gull was on a flooded pool west of the cafe, whilst the drake Red breasted Merganser remains on the NBML.

Two Stonechats flitted amongst  the boulders at the Lighthouse car park. At this time of year they are as likely to be migrants moving north as overwintering birds. Great birds to see and always charismatic.
