Beach Walk & Coots

The heavens opened this morning, scuppering my plans to photograph butterflies on the Downs. We went for a walk along the beach in the afternoon. The water has been high recently, combination of tides and wind I guess. The lower beach has been covered by water for a couple of days, so no metal detecting. Today we saw dead dogfish, spider crab, many cuttlefish bones and loads of seaweed. A couple of windsurfers were having a great time and three lads with boogie boards were heading out. A walk round Mewsbrook Park revealed some nesting coots and lots of young gulls. This coot had no trouble telling some Mallards where to go:
