Decided to walk to the inlet past Rainbow corner in fine weather but it proved to be very disappointing none of the recent waders were about.All I saw was a lone Ringed Plover.
On the return walk the weather had gone down the tubes and it had become overcast.Did have a battle with 3 Grey Wagtails as they flitted about on the rocks but I'm blowed if I could keep up with them.
After a coffee with Francoise in the Cafe I walked down the Farborough Bank and soon found some Yellow Wagtails but when I went to take off my new rucksack to get out my teleconverter I found I could'nt - the reason being it wasn't on my back.It was in the Cafe.What a complete burk!!!!! I'd only bought the rucksack yesterday and for once had gone upmarket.In it were 2 birding books,the remains of my lunch (this could be a deterrent to thieves) and worst of all a 1.4 teleconverter that was not cheap.
I raced back to the Cafe,arrived panting like a large dog on a hot day to be greeted by a maintenance man at the door with "Lost a bag mate ? It's behind the counter."I thought briefly of giving him a kiss but decided against it.
This incident showed that there are still some honest people about and also some complete burks.
