Crow point

After a call from John Bronze (thanks John!)I tootled off down the Toll road late afternoon, - lots of Gulls after flying ants - and there were quite a few Gulls on the mud by the flood. Just as I started looking through they all went up and  - away! Bird of Prey I thought. Couldn't find one until scanning the mobile flock of 60+ Dunlin I found a feeding Peregrine. Then I saw Rob further down the toll road so went down to join him - it was an Osprey that put up all the Gulls! I missed it completely. However 2 Spoonbills and the Great White Egret were in place and unspooked by these avian predators.
