A walk along the coast path this afternoon was a mud bath yet again resulting in some very muddy shoes on my return home!
The water pipit showed well again on the seaweed and rocks by the sewage pipe at Wembury Point. The guide book states that they are found on marshy areas but I have seen them regularly feeding along the beach at Wembury over the years.
A small flock of birds in the stubble field in the old HMS Cambridge site were very flighty, flying up into the nearby hedgerow and then back in to the stubble, amongst them were at least 3 bright yellow male yellowhammers and 1 male cirl bunting along with females and chaffinches.
The beach was busy again with families enjoying the sunshine and mild weather and it was nice to sit and watch the view while eating one of the fantastic pasties from the cafe with a cup of coffee.
Back to work on Monday unfortunately and nights as well, what joy.
