Back On The Beach



The unseasonably warm weather held all through last week, and high temps combined with low tides make the beach irresistible. It warranted another walk on the sand while my daughter surfed. The least terns were doing a lot of standing around with gulls. A group of five...



And four more.



These three curlews were busy checking the sand for tasty morsels, while the two sandpipers, below, worked the piles of seaweed and ran hither and yon on their matchstick legs.



And a bird of a different feather emerged from the water to give me a lift home.

I've been silly... staying away because we have been sick, when time in the sun, walking among the birds is likely the cure for most ailments.

Do you know your unseasonably warm winter is about the same temperature as our seasonably warm summer?
