It’s been a beautiful mild day so I took my camera for a little stroll down the estuary, hoping for a glimpse of a heron or a little egret. That was not to be but I did find the usual estuary birdlife; a pair of mallards, a trio of swans, a moorhen with feathers like velvet, a shouting tern (such a big honk for such a delicate bird!) with wind-ruffled feathers, some squabbling seagulls and some rather lovely Devon pigeons. Some of the houses are right on the water… must be wonderful to wake up to this view and these birds every morning. Thanks to lieveheersbeestje who’s ‘butterfly cream’ action I’ve used on a few of these.
