April 4th 2014 (Non Birds)

Amble Marshes; There are times that I yearn for those carefree days gone by, of birding with just a trusty pair of binoculars, with out the need to be laden down with heavy cameras, lenses tripod and telescope. I did try a light weight bridge camera, but found it worse than useless for capturing any sudden interesting wildlife action; problem is, when I do decide to do just that you can guarantee some unique, never to be repeated wildlife action to occur right in front of your very nose! Last evening sitting in the Tower hide at Amble Marshes I watched a Stoat (Mustela ermine) swim from the long island in front of the hide, several times to the smaller island (back right) carrying in the mouth, what appeared to be Moorhen (Gallinula chloropus) eggs, before depositing them carefully in a spot near the centre of the island.
