Back On The Beach

What a difference a few days can make.   The storm came and went and now we're back to our more typical sunny winter days - ideal for a walk on the beach.  Curlews were out in full force, working rich veins of sand crabs revealed by the outgoing tide.

 They focus on their meal if you keep a distance, but get too close and they're outta there.

Wild stocks are blooming high on the cliffside, not so very different from their cultivated, nursery-bound cousins and just as sweetly scented.

Looking south, a vast expanse of sand and sea before me, and my sweet girl emerging from the sparkling surf.

Curlews nest in our fields GW - and they fly in from far away - I wonder if any of these in your photograph end up in our fields.
