This one was looking very dapper
sporting a fine blackberry based hat.
This smart Yellowhammer distracted me for a while,
another underrated bird I reckon.
While we were at the Cemetery Fields Steve called to say he'd found a Cattle Egret. It had landed in with some cows in a field between Seaton Marshes and Black Hole Marsh. We decided to go down there for a look, like you do. It wasn't easy to get close enough for a photo, but we had very nice views non the less.
Distant Cattle Egret..quite a good photo of the cow though.
Even worse photo of the Cattle Egret..
..Quite a good one of Phil though ( not trespassing, obviously) hiding behind the hedge ...
Wonder what he's taking a photo of...
...The Cattle Egret obviously..And couple of birders who are also NOT trespassing!
Any similarity to Bun and I is purely coincidental
( Thanks for the use of photo Phil).
Whilst leaving Beer Head I looked out to sea and noticed a sure sign that it's August Bank Holiday weekend, a mass of 'weekend fishermen' racing out of Axmouth Harbour towards Beer Head. What's the rush!? Fishermen are a strange lot aren't they?
