Bringing a bit of luck with me to the lagoons for a sunset
|A wave of Curlews flying over the reserve deciding where to drop. They would choose Monks Lagoon.|

|Sunset at last.|
|Black-Tailed Godwits hurtle in front of the sun en route to Priors|

Monks Lagoons had hundreds of birds on it. The Curlews had landed in legion on the lagoon and were joined by Lapwings and a large flock of Black Headed Gulls and Dunlins.

The light was now fading fast and it was time to move on and leave the birds undisturbed. It had been a great evening and my daughter had probably had the best first visit to the reserve that I can imagine anyone has had fo a long time.
