The forecast said rain, a glance out of the window said otherwise, so, after a knocked together lunch from yesterday’s leftover mushroom and courgette stew, tarted up with some spinach, pasta and smoked paprika, we headed out in the car for the coast.
The outgoing tide attracted flocks of waders, gulls, oyster catchers, black-headed gulls, and some I haven’t yet been able to identify, all running along the shore at the receding waters.
Inland as we turned from the beach towards the marina we passed pochards, tufted ducks and more black headed gulls and what I think could be a Bean Goose.
I stopped to talk to another dog walker with a pair of young Tibetan Terriers before turning back to complete the circuit by retracing my steps, returning to the shore.
Some days you just gotta let rip. . . .
and have a good bark..
yep, that feels sooo good
A pair of Great Crested Grebes have nested in my local park and have four grebelings. Yesterday the light was ideal to go and take some photos. Unfortunately the road was closed and I was unable to get to the park. So I snatched up my camera this morning and packed the dogs in the car, drove off and hoped for the best.
