Wind and Wave Riders

It was drafty on the fore-shore at Ferry Bridge this morning with even the 'sail shaped' banners on the newly erected lamp post 'yards' being torn from their moorings. At least it was keeping the few Waders that were there close to the deck, making counting fairly easy. Much the same as yesterday with 94 Dunlin, 126 Ringed Plover, 6 Turnstone, singles of Knot & Sanderling plus 4 Wheatear. It was the second day on the trot I didn't record a Mediterranean Gull.

It's tomorrow I believe the World Windsurfing Championships get underway, and if the 'warm ups' over the past couple of days are anything to go by Gold is going to be extremely difficult to achieve. Capturing the action on a single shot still is impossible, so my advise is, if you are able, get down to the edge of Portland Harbour and experience what maybe the biggest FREE thrill you'll get this year.
