On a day when the temperature was sitting on freezing point, with a 35kph wind blowing in off the North Sea (so what the wind chill was I dare not think) and snow flurries whipping by horizontally, I took the following photos on the causeway out to Holy Island (Lindisfarne) off the Northumberland coast.

Bar-tailed Godwit


Black-headed Gull


Eurasian Curlew



Grey Plover - winter plumage


Common Eider - males and females


Long-tailed Duck - male & female; winter plumage



Ruddy Turnstone - winter plumage

I was going to say, for me the hardest part of birding is justifying the cost of my camera gear to my wife <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->

Some great shots under the circumstances.

Regards,

Mossie
