High tide at Mullock

Watched a Water Shrew swimming in the very high tide by Mullock Bridge on the 9th at dusk - the dark fur, pointy nose and white underparts were very clear. It seemed quite happy though you would think it would not be too keen on salty water. Not so happy were the several voles (not sure which type) which were doggy-paddling vigorously towards the bridge in order to try and find some dry land!

A mystery bird which flew over calling just as I left I have since identified as a Green Sandpiper.
