On the way I encountered two Barn Owl, a Marsh Harrier and hundreds of geese (Pink foots, Brents and Greylags). The bushes held large numbers of mixed thrushes and starlings.
Arriving at the dunes a small group of birders already had the Isabelline in their sights so I quickly joined them to get on the bird. The views were distant and the bird was quite mobile. Whilst here we had the unpleasant sight of a Stoat taking down a large Rabbit. I grabbed a few shots in the gloomy light but don't know why as it really was a grim thing to witness.
