A stroll along the beach
It started off rather murky here on Anglesey this morning so it was on with a bit of housework. However, about 1130 it got a lot brighter and I decided to nip out for a spot of photography.
Here is what took place.
Arriving at Penmon, spring was well under way.
The Chiff-Chaff was singing away in the woods close to where I park the van.
It's nice to have them back again this year and they are always one of the first migrants to arrive.
So I took a few shots and then headed out of the wood
Right on the edge of the wood, a Mistle Thrush was singing his little heart out.
Down at the waters-edge there was plenty going on
Oyster-Catchers were whirring around and settling again
A Redshank was foraging about as the tide went out. A Turnstone can be seen in the background
I saw a gull and Cormorant sitting on a rock and carefully made my way slowly towards them
I had never been this close to a Cormorant before and took about 60 shots
Then out of the blue, the Cormorant called out and I captured my favorite shot of the day.
So chuffed with that last shot, I decided to leave and get it onto the computer.
As I walked back to the van, I was rather suprised to see that the Turnstone were not flying off
I decided to take a few shots of these delightful little shore-birds.
They were sitting around in small groups
on the rocks. A lovely looking bird I think you would agree
Last shot of this Turnstone nearly being caught by a wave.
There we are folks. I hope you enjoyed the little stroll.
I would just like to wish you all a very Happy Easter.
